Typo?  Or just a miscalculation.  I seriously can't remember.

(numbers are not exactly correct but to show what's happening)
600 5-minute averages: now to now-3000 minutes
600 30-minute averages: now-3000 minutes to now-21000 minutes

600 5-minute averages: now to now-3000 minutes
700 30-minute averages: now to now-21000 minutes

The period covered by the 5-minute averages makes the difference.

Make sure the area you graph is completely covered by the RRA that
should be selected.  If it doesn't, the next best RRA is choosen.

Experiment a bit.  Use rrdtool fetch to do so.
