except they aren't removed automatically atleast for me with just local
monit and OpenBSD. I think it works fine with version 4? It's not a big
issue for me anyway, I just disabled eventqueue.

Chris, does it reoccur if you trigger the same event and what version
were you using?

Subject: eventqueue possible loop or files not cleared

This happens with 5.2.3 and 5.2.5.

With eventqueue enabled and a host check on OpenBSD, I haven't tested
others, sorry. I would end up (only after triggered and from then on)
with loads of messages of "connection failed box1" with the same time in
the message body (i.e. failure was a quick test by me) with the
difference between deliveries being "set daemon time".

Should the files created in the eventqueue basedir be cleared up or
why is it sending the same stale alert on every check?
