Can this sort of thing be necessary?!?

This is expected behavior with the current code, and happens on the
first poll interval for each sensor that is monitored.  When a new
monitor task is created, it has no previous reported state, so when the
poll determines the new state is Normal, it reports the state change.

It would not be extremely difficult to suppress this by initializing
the previous value for a newly-created monitor task to "Normal".

Personally I like having the initial state reported, but I could be
rather easily convinced to change it.

That's what I was guessing.

I'm just concerned that having these spewed over the console screen
while sysinst is running will create a bad first impression, and such
impressions tend to count.  Not that we have a popularity contest to
win, but still, there's no need to make it even worse than it is...

Hmmm, during sysinst? I'll have to check into that. I wouldn't expect to see them during sysinst; I would only expect them on systems that have actual monitor values being set in the /etc/envsys.cfg file. If the messages are showing up other cases, that would be a bug. :)
