[mrtg] Error decoding response PDU?

Greetings everyone.

I noticed in my mailbox this morning a message from my cron
daemon indicating the above message, and found that it was
generated by BER.pm.  It's the first time I've seen it, and I'm
assuming it was just a fluke but I'd like to know what the actual
error means JIC I ever see it again.

Here's the content of the message:

SNMP Error:
Error decoding response PDU:
  Expected sequence tag 48, got 1
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "192.168.xx.xx" [192.168.xx.xx].161

And here is a portion of the mrtg config file:
