Status colour has to change explicitly - i.e. by notification of status
change. If the server died when the power went off, and came back when
everything was back again it would have no reason to show anything had
changed. Purple only happens when a display update has expired
information. If xymon was running the whole time (e.g. on a UPS) you
shouldn't see all green.
