disable valid IPv4 address check to allow scanning Hamachi ( targets?

When I try scanning an Hamachi client’s IP address, nmap states “doArp can only handle IPv4 addresses” and aborts. I know this is because Hamachi’s assignment of 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.
