I noticed something similar many months ago, where my machine's entry didn't 
even have the right architecture.  As I recall, I emailed the Smolt 
maintainer, and he said it was probably a problem with the client-side UUID 
generation not being random enough.  As a result, multiple machines could 
get the same UUID and so write to the same server database entry.  That's 
the last I heard about it.
