[smokeping-users] Shortening the step causes smokeping to fail

I'm having a problem lowering the 'step' interval with smokeping 2.0.5.
I wanted to drop it from the default 300 s down to 30 s (though
perhaps 60 is more reasonable). I currently have 113 targets defined.
I adjusted the 'step' setting, and restarted smokeping. At that point
i realized that the RRD files need to agree with the config file, so i
deleted the RRD files, started smokeping, and waited.
What i discovered has varied and is confusing to me. The latest
symptoms were a step of 30, but the packets were only actually being
sent every 5 minutes, resulting in completely strange graphs, with 4.5
minute graps between a 30s sample.
Currenly, i dropped the number of pings to 10, step of 60, and i get
no test probes at all, and my system is not sending out ICMP packets.
I have not changed the database definitions at all, but i have deleted
the RRD files after changing step or pings settings.
I've become baffled, i don't understand what's failing, the logs don't
seem to complain. Does anyone have ideas of what's going wrong?
