We're using neither -- the config file I provided is actually *exactly*
what we're using, no more, no less.

The issue is definitely not temporary. Also, when a user unmonitors, I
see in the logs something like:

syslog.1:Jan 13 09:54:10 ccu monit[1399]: unmonitor service 'foobar' on
user request

But the logs just show *nothing*.
