the 1.x series is quite deprecated by now; please try the latest 2.x
version (currently 2.0.5). I don't remember seeing this particular
bug, but there have been several changes to the alert code and
last I checked, the alerts were working for me.

If the problem persists, please include the output of 'smokeping -debug'
along with your configuration file.

If you want to stay with the old version, you'll have to debug this
yourself. A good start is still 'smokeping -debug' and possibly running
strace (or truss or trace or whatever your OS calls it) on the stalled
daemon to see if it's eg. waiting for some child process to finish.
