I guess I'm on my own with this, so I'll document progress to the list
in the hope
that someone else may find it useful.
In debug mode, I found this:
FPing: probing 8 targets with step 300 s and offset 202 s.
FPing: Executing /usr/local/sbin/fping -C 20 -q -B1 -i10 -r1
followed by a list of only seven targets
The underlying cause turned out to be a file-access issue. I run the
daemon under its own user account, called 'smoke'. This user also owns
data files for SmokePing. The web server runs under a different user
'apache'. The address registration file is maintained by the
script, triggered by the web server.
A first fix was to add the 'apache' user to the 'smoke' group, and to
directories in the data and htdocs group-writeable.
More work is needed to line up suexec and Perl's -T mode to do things
