I suspect a syntax problem in the tasks.cfg

Where on the line did you place the --debug ? Remember the "CMD" line is 
a single line, though frequently continued. For example, my "line" looks 

> CMD xymond --pidfile=$XYMONSERVERLOGS/xymond.pid \

What version of the software, and under what operating system is it 
running? I've just confirmed it works as expected on 4.3.26 under 
Solaris 10.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
