That's probably one of *many* problems with hostmon.
For me, it's brittle like a potato chip under Sol, AIX
and Linux.  I can't even do
  while true; do
    telnet <hostmon_host> hostmon
    sleep 5
without it crashing!

In other words, imo, using hostmon as a primary method
of notifiction about outages is unwise.  

I suspect using hostmon with rsh comm and ssh might be
more stable.  Can anyone comment about this idea?
