[mrtg] MRTG resets all graphs daily, why?

Looks like you have something automatically deleting your log files.  Are you using native mode (.log) or RRDtool mode (.rrd)?  Some people have badly-written 'reaper' programs that on a daily basis go through the filesystem deleting all .log files...

At http://www.squeezer.net/mrtg/localhost_68.209.223.242.html you will
see that all graphs are reseting daily (the weekly, monthly, and yearly
graphs are only showing one day of data).  How can I fix this so that
the weekly, monthly, and yearly graphs display the correct data?  I am
running MRTG 2.16.2 on Fedora 10 i386.  /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg was created with:

/usr/bin/cfgmaker --output=/etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg --global "workdir:
/home/adam/public_html/mrtg" -ifref=ip --global "options[_]:
growright,bits" craz33guy at localhost

and in /etc/crontab I have:  0-59/5 * * * * root env LANG=C
/usr/bin/mrtg /etc/mrtg/mrtg.cfg
