Ahh, found it.

I can reproduce the problem by having the probes subdirectory in @INC.
Remove any instances of

use lib '<...>/Smokeping/probes'

You should only need to specify the main directory, where Smokeping.pm resides.

For anybody interested, the problem is that FPing.pm has

use base qw(Smokeping::probes::base);

but when the probes directory is in @INC, the base.pm there is used for
the 'use base' part, instead of the base.pm in the system directory.

That's what you get for naming modules all-lowercase. I'll see if I get
around to fixing this, or at least documenting it somewhere.
