True.  This is probably a better temporary solution:

On "updatev", the server flushes an pending updates, then calls another
rrd_update_r() to produce the output for "updatev".  It doesn't perform as
well due to the frequent flushes, but it's an easy start.

Is it worth trying the above simplified "updatev" support in 1.4?  I don't
know how common "updatev" is among users...
