As is usual, what went wrong was me. :)

Once i did a rrddump I noticed that the data was still intact. What
is killing me is that the graph period I was graphing is now covered
by the enlarged shorter period rra that is full of zeros. 

So now my question is, does any one have a patch that will allow me
to directly select the rra I want rather than letting rrdtool make
up my mind for me. It seems a shame that it is reaveraging that data
over and over even though it went to all the trouble to roll it up
and store it.
