[smokeping-users] Configuration reload/restart issues in Debian/Ubuntu

I've experienced some configuration issues in Debian/Ubuntu after 
installing smokeping via aptitude install smokeping.
Both distributions keep the configuration in a distributed way, defining 
all relevant information under /etc/smokeping/config.d in various files, 
including all files then at /etc/smokeping/config via the @include 

When reloading/restarting the daemon after changing the configuration, 
e.g. adding hosts at /etc/smokeping/config.d/Targets, changes aren't 
noticed by the daemon. It only works if you've touched 
/etc/smokeping/config before reloading/restarting the smokeping daemon.

I took a look at the init-script in /etc/init.d, but didn't find any 
relevant parts that could cause such a behaviour. Is it the smokeping 
daemon that ignores parsing the configuration when it hasn't been modified?

Thanks in advance.
