The change has to do with an off-by-one error that was present in
the code.  There shouldn't be any differences in the output.

I created a quick test script; this doesn't show the problem you're
describing.  Maybe you can create one that does?

    rrdtool create check.rrd        \
       --start 1013036100           \
            DS:x:GAUGE:600:U:U      \
    rrdtool update check.rrd 1013036400:1 1013036700:2 1013037000:3
    rrdtool update check.rrd 1013037300:4 1013037600:5 1013037900:6
    rrdtool update check.rrd 1013038200:7 1013038500:8 1013038800:9
    rrdtool update check.rrd 1013039100:10
    rrdtool fetch check.rrd --start 1013036100 --end 1013039100 AVERAGE

The rrdtool version that was used to do this is the most recent
snapshot, to be found at (sorry for the long line):
