[Xymon] client problems

Hi Malcolm,

A solution would be much appreciated.  Thank you for taking a look.

The problem is in the reporting of the network info for BBWin on Windows
2008.  I've attached a graph from one of my systems running 2008 to
illustrate, but the basic problem is the ifstat section reports include
junk with every report.  Here's one from the same host as the graph:

[ifstat] 0 0 0 0 0 0

Notice the last entry.  That keeps changing as well.  After the client
is running for a while I'll have 6-10 ifstat graphs with bogus addresses
on them in the trends pages.

I'm using BBWin on Windows 2008 (32- and 64-bit). What exactly is the
problem? I'm now on the BBWin project, so maybe can work on a
