If it remains red, then it is continuosly crashing. You should see some 
entries in xymonlaunch.log about that task terminating with a signal, 
and then being restarted.

There should also be a core-file in $XYMONHOME/tmp

If possible I would very much like you to do as described in
http://www.xymon.com/xymon/help/known-issues.html#bugreport : Use the 
'gdb' tool to give me a traceback of what xymond_client was doing when 
it crashed. Quoting this page:

If one of the Xymon tools crashes and leaves a core-file (usually in the 
~xymon/server/tmp/ directory), please use the gdb tool to pinpoint where 
the crash occurred:

     * Login as the Xymon user
     * $ cd ~/server
       $ gdb bin/PROGRAMFILE tmp/COREFILE
       then at the gdb> prompt, execute the command
       gdb> bt
