I believe that you are seeing double counter wrap. You need to either:
1. Use 64 bit counters instead of 32 bit, or
2. Increase your sample rate from say 5 minutes to 1 minute.
Whenever I tried to use 64 bit counters on a Cisco, I would get strange
spikes when the counters wrapped, so I ended up using a 1 min sample
interval. This may have been fixed in newer IOS, I did open a ticket
with Cisco at one time...
This is a function of the counters that you are using, not MRTG or
RRDTool. I can't tell you how to change the sample interval in MRTG, as
I wrote my own perl based collection system before MRTG went to using
