The thing is, that the 5-minute RRA covers 2 past weeks, and the graph 
requested covers 24 hours. And half-hour RRA matches the same period 
evenly. This is how those RRD files are created:


The other thing, which could point us to a bug, is that this happens 
to LINE2 line, and the red LINE1 Holt-winters boundaries look as they 
must be. The rrdgraph command is absolutely the same as given in 
jake Brutlag's article. I can give you a log excerpt on Monday, but there's 
really nothing special. The holt-winters RRA lengths are two weeks as well.
