If the graphs look okay after the first run and revert to "default"
settings after another run, chances are you have two MRTG processes
running, each on its own config file but pointing to the same log files.

Check your schedular and your mrtg.cfg files.

Also note that you use "options[_]: something" which set a *default*
that can be ignored if you use "options[target]: something else".
