When in quiet mode, a new line will be printed if an ARP answer is received
while nothing will be printed if no answer is received. Here is what I mean
( answers to ARP requests but there is no .254 on my LAN):
--- example top ---
$ echo "+"; sudo arping -q -c1; echo "+"; sudo arping -q -c1; echo "+"

--- example bottom ---
See ? There is a new line too much corresponding to the first ARP request.

Arping 1 is not affected but newer upstream release (2.04) is. Attached is a
small patch that applies to 2.04 too.
