OK, so here's my next question.  When I do a dump of the offending rrd file, I
get a line with the following datum:

<!-- 1999-07-30 07:28:00 GMT --> <row><v> 9.0098813041e+04 </v></row>

I know this datum is wrong and it is causing an ugly spike.  What's
the easiest way to get rid of it without erasing my database?
