If the parser can handle that special case, ok.

I generated a new secret, and when the remote client first reported
in, the .adr file was created OK. However, smokeping still
_occasionally_ logs the "Invalid Target" error, and when the client
changed IP addresses this morning, the .adr file was not updated. What
can be going wrong here?

Can I have a patch which causes the "Invalid Target" error to be
logged with a timestamp, source-IP, and a trailing newline? This would
greatly ease correlating error.log, access.log and tcpdump.
