[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.
