Alright, after some fiddling I am getting proper responses when I have 
a separate probe module for each source host, and these are configured 
to ping a single remote host. Another problem has arisen when I try and 
ping multiple hosts from the same source host.

smokeping --debug is returning proper ssh lines, namely the following:
RFPingRemoteOne: query=/usr/bin/ssh -1 -l monitor 
/usr/local/sbin/fping -b1024 -C 20 -q -B1 -i10 -r1
RFPingRemoteTwo: query=/usr/bin/ssh -1 -l monitor 
/usr/local/sbin/fping -b1024 -C 20 -q -B1 -i10 -r1

These are being graphed as 100% packetloss, however, fping is returning 
proper timing information and such. Is RemoteFPing.pm not written to 
allow for this, or is there another implementation caveat I'm missing?
