RRDtool works this way by design.  Intervals don't start at an
arbitrary point in time, they start at time zero (0). Ergo, each interval
starts at n*<interval_size>

If you need to store data at a point in time, you need to make sure
that this point in time is n*<interval_size>.  In your case you need
one point per hour.

For more elaborate discussion of this please search the archive.
