By xymon client, do you mean 'xymonlaunch'? (The client itself is just a
shell script, after all...). To my knowledge the --debug setting not
visible to any of the tasks getting launched.

Keep in mind that this setting can be changed dynamically as well, so if
it were an environment variable (for example), it would only reflect the
status as of the moment it was launched (which is probably only of more
concern for persistent or long-running daemons).
