This is, indeed, not correct.  First things first: are you *very* *sure*
that the graph is not regenerated?  Looking in your browser is not enough,
you must look at the files timestamp.

The way --lazy *should* work is exactly that.  If the timestamp of the
image file is older than the timestamp of any of the RRD files, the
image should be regenerated.

please let me know if the image file is not updated.
