disable valid IPv4 address check to allow scanning Hamachi (5.0.0.0/8) targets?

When I try scanning an Hamachi client’s 5.0.0.0/8 IP address, nmap states “doArp can only handle IPv4 addresses” and aborts. I know this is because Hamachi’s assignment of 5.0.0.0/8 IP addresses is unofficial, but it would be nice if the valid IPv4 address check could be disabled so Hamachi clients and other hosts with unofficially-assigned IP addresses could still be scanned.

I searched for a solution/workaround but only found discussions about Hamachi’s unofficial IP address assignments, not any way to scan Hamachi clients.

I do not think these details matter in this case, but I am currently using nmap v5.50 on Windows 7 Professional IA-32.

Thanks,
Brolin
