thanks for the bug report ... COMPUTE is not used very often hence
there might be a bunch of bugs burried there ... my guess (without
looking at the code) is that the system does not properly determine
that it is running out of space for storing the COMPUTE expression.
(since the rrdtool data format has only a rather limited amount of
space for these expressions, that state might be reached quite
