[mrtg] Data file not retaining data except for 1st line...

Hi all, I am having a problem collecting the number of processes running.
This is a snipt of what I was running on a RaQ4, it was working just fine 
there, but now its on a generic linux box and no longer works.

my processes.sh file looks something like
INDATA=`cat /proc/loadavg | cut -d ' ' -f4 | cut -d '/' -f 2`
OUTDATA=`cat /proc/loadavg | cut -d ' ' -f4 | cut -d '/' -f 1`
echo $INDATA
echo `uptime | cut -d"," -f1,2`
echo processes

the output from the processes.sh script is
1:52pm up 24 days, 11:47

The processes.log looks like
1031690522 148 3
1031690522 0 0 0 0
1031690403 0 0 0 0
1031690400 0 0 0 0
It seems that the 1st line does indeed reflect the current poll, but the 
following lines don't.

and my mrtg.cfg looks like
Target[processes]: `/etc/mrtg/processes.sh`
Title[processes]: Processes
PageTop[processes]: <h3>Processes</h3>
YLegend[processes]: Processes
ShortLegend[processes]: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
LegendI[processes]: Total&nbsp;
LegendO[processes]: Running&nbsp;

I have attempted to be 100% self sufficient in locating the bug(s) and I 
have even been in an RTFM loop for several days (off and on).
I am sure its something stupid I am overlooking but any input would be most
