it looks like you're running in a non-C locale. The curl probe is
expecting a dot ('.') as the decimal separator, not a comma (',').
Try unsetting LC_ALL (or setting it to "C"), as discussed recently
(the 'Echoping again' thread).

Future versions of Smokeping will recognize this situation and
bail out with an error message.
