[Xymon] Clear Ghostlist file?

the webpages ignore ghosts if they haven't been heard from for more than 
10 minutes, which includes those servers that have been added to hosts.cfg.

The "xymon ghostlist command returns all of the servers that 
have - at some time - been recorded as ghosts. The last field of the 
output is the timestamp that they were last seen as ghosts, so if the 
difference from that timestamp until current time is greater than 600 
seconds, they will not show up on the webpage.
