[Xymon] Bug? Dropping host doesn't remove hostdata

Using Xymon 4.3.10 I wanted to remove a host completely, so used the
following command on the Xymon server:

   xymon xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx "drop lib-srvr10"

This removed all of the host data except for the 'lib-srvr10'
subdirectory in the 'data/hostdata' directory. The subdirectory still
contained all of the data files for the host.

I had already removed the host from the hosts.cfg file, and restarted
Xymon. No errors were seen in any of the log files.
