[smokeping-users] Can't get TCPPing to work with multiple targets (Smokeping 2.004002)

All of our latency tests to date from our master and slaves have used the Fping probe.  I’ve recently added the TCPPing probe, and added one target successfully.

However, if I try to add another target under this particular slave, it never gets picked up.  I logged onto the slave and restarted it with “--debug” and it read “TCPPing starting with 1 targets,” even though I have two specified in the config file.

The only way I can get it to recognize the second target is if I break it out into two separate sections, like so:

+ Gateway1
slaves = foo
probe = TCPPing
menu = Gateway1
title = Gateway1

++ foogateway1
host =
menu = foogateway1
title = Foo Gateway 1
nomasterpoll = yes

+ Gateway2
slaves = foo
probe = TCPPing
menu = Gateway2
title = Gateway2

++ foogateway2
host =
menu = foogateway2
title = Foo Gateway 2
nomasterpoll = yes

I’d like it all to work under one top heading, with all the targets under slave foo listed under it.  This works fine for Fping targets, but not out TCPPing ones.
