[mrtg] 1s in MRTG logs

Hi All

I have sometimes observed in MRTG log files that data values are 1, and
in logging several things (e.g. CPU utilisation, free memory, disk busy
% and so on) they are all 1 at the same time. Is this "1" value
trustworthy? I understood from the documentation that -1 is supposed to
be used if data could not be obtained. Does MRTG convert -1 to 1 because
it doesn't handle negative numbers? Is there more documentation
somewhere that covers this?
