Check that the modification date on the .png files is changing.  Possibly you have a permissions issue, and that file is simply not being updated?

Check the .log file actually contains the correct number of rows for that granularity.  Im not sure how native MRTG would behave if the file were accidentally truncated.

You might like to consider moving to RRDTool.  It is far more efficient and lets 3rd-party systems read the data as well.
