Sometimes it's the case of simply the URL parser not recognizing the '&' sign!
I tried using a couple of Python clients to make requests which need more than one parameter -- thus needing the '&' sign in the API request URL -- but the clients just break, giving me the same 'Target user not specified' error. Try formulating your request URL in your web browser first (requesting XML output preferably), with example screen names for source_screen_name and target_screen_name. If you're getting a correct response from the web browser, then that means your client needs tweaking to accept multiple parameters.
