I think it has to do with Unscaled.  I am only seeming to 
get this problem if the graphs are listed as unscaled.  I 
figured this out because the graph I have it building 
using dskPercent.1 and such are actually percentages but 
the scales are nonsense.  In fact the Min/Max on the 
bottom of the graph are correct and on dskPercent it says 
7, but the scale is nonsense.  Other clues?  Could 14all 
be graphing the scale incorrectly?
