Sorry, I wasn't implying your script was faulty in anyway. Quite
obviously the problem is my setup isn't reporting the right values
because I screw up somewhere and your script proves that both MRTG and
it is executing correctly, just that my server is giving them garbage
data to work with.

Thanks for the links, the 2nd one looks really useful!

Unfortunately I'll have to figure it out soon. Hopefully the scripts
from the second link would work when plugged straight in and buy me
time to figure things out. I'm still bewildered by how on earth did I
get MRTG to work before the update, since I didn't had to do a thing
to the config file previously.

Thanks yet again for your valuable help! :)
