OK, just a quick follow-up.

I removed the conn= setting from the host's definition and the ghost client
entry has not shown up after several days.

Can't explain why, perhaps the host just started sending Xymon reports from
its primary IP for an unknown reason.

No idea on this one, but thought I would at least report back to close out
this thread. :)
