Are you sure about the "<servername>:color" syntax in the output file ? 
I haven't seen that before - I assumed  BBWin would always report the 
status-messages as belonging to the host that BBWin runs on (picking up 
the status-name from the name of the outputfile).

If I am right, then Xymon sees a status with an unrecognizable 
color-name, and therefore the message is discarded.
