cfg_l is a lockfile, and only shows up with an instance of mrtg is running.

How are you calling this new file?  Did you Include: it into a master
mrtg.cfg file?   You would only see the lockfile on the master.

Or are you running a separate instance of mrtg?  From cron or from startup?
Do your other files have RunAsDaemon: yes in them?
