[smokeping-users] does loss_background do what I think? (and why doesn't it do it?)

I've just upgraded my 2.4.2 installation to 2.6.9, and noticed on the
website this nice looking feature where loss is shown as a vertical line
instead of just the single pixel on the median line. I'm tracking a
small/infrequent loss problem at the moment, and this would be very
useful. (I mean, like this:
My 2.4.2 didn't do this, and my 2.6.9 one doesn't either by default. It
looks like I need:
loss_background = yes
in the "+ detail" section on the config file, but that doesn't seem to
make any difference, so...
1) Is loss_background what produces those vertical lines?
2) Is there something else I need to do to enable them? (e.g. rrdtool
version > n, I have 1.2.27 at the moment)
Thanks in advance for any pointers...
