[rrd-users] Problems with multi-DS RRD that gets asynchronous-DS updates

My near-term graphs aren't looking too great. This is caused
by the fact that my multi-DS RRDs get asynchronous-DS updates.
Here's a specific example that illustates the problem:
I have an "MRTG-like" rrd, straight from the rrdtutorial "A Real
A collection script runs every 5 minutes. It did:
rrdtool update MadisonSD.rrd 937503600:475724299:104956107
Then at 1999-09-16 12:45:00 CDT, it did snmpgets across
a second boundary so my script stuffed values into rrd via:
rrdtool update MadisonSD.rrd -t input 937503900:496053104
rrdtool update MadisonSD.rrd -t output 937503901:108120595
I expect the value of the DS output at 1999-09-16 12:45:00 CDT to be
1.058e+04 = (108120595 - 104956107) / 300.
But instead I get NaN:
<!-- 1999-09-16 12:45:00 CDT --> <row><v> 6.7762683333e+04 </v> \
<v> NaN </v></row>
So about 1/10th of my data values are "NaN" and thus a
last-four-hour graph looks pretty bad because 1/10th of the
LINEs and AREAs are at zero. =:(
I'd like rrdtool to take the PDP for the DS output at 937503901 and
calculate a reasonable VALUE for the DS output at 937503900.
Comments? Is this a bug? Is this user error?
