There was a bug report[0] about this on the debian package, and I've
committed a change to patches so that the css and js would show up
correctly, but the fix was not yet pushed out to a new package.

I'll see if I can push out the fix to debian soon so that URLs with
/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi show up correctly again (this would remove the
