[mrtg] Interface Description and white_space?

I am trying to usnderstand where MRTG's cfgmaker may have changed 
behavior. I have tested the building options related to interface 
description, name, and alias but I cannot get the interface description to 
show up in the interface block.

The Cisco IOS configuration is say "FastEthernet4/1" and I added a 
Description of "To Building Three" to it on the router.

The interface section in the resulting cfgmaker build will list 
"FastEthernet4/1 To Building Three" in the table, but not in the target 
header, where I believe indexmaker pulls from. So when I get my index of 
interfaces (23 of them) They only say "FastEthernet4/1" etc...

Which it did not use to do. I would know, my manager that reads the MRTG 
page has NO idea which interface is which, but knows the site locations.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?

MRTG version 2.12.2
