populate_hostid_cache mixes up host's name and visible name #35

populate_hostid_cache uses the visible name of the host while everything else uses the real name.
It should also not exclude not monitored(disabled) host, otherwise define_host_monitoring_status is useless in bulk operations.

Here's my quick and dirty fix which seems to work just fine:

Thanks for the feedback.
+1. This is a confirmed bug and will be fixed with the next release.

The problem is the monitored_hosts=True attribute. name == host if it is not defined according to the API doc:

populate_hostid_cache() has to include all host defined in zabbix, no…
…t only the enable ones. Fix attribute name->host for consistency. [Issue:#35]
