'http' as a test shouldn't need to be listed in XYMONNETSVCS explicitly
since it's handled by its own conversation mechanism, and a problem there
would end up affecting all 'http' tests, not just that one.

If it's following the hosts.cfg entry around, it's probably xymonnet
really seeing it as in bad state.

- What's the error message given in the http test for the one that's failing?

- Can you get to the site using wget from your monitor server? Ruled out

- Are you using SNI on this server, or is there anything distinct about
that one vhost? Try toggling --sni/--no-sni

- Try running xymonnet in debug mode (just that one host) and see what it
gives you:

xymoncmd xymonnet --debug  --ping --checkresponse --test-untagged site.org
