Hi All,
I'm getting an error message when I use a start time of 0. Why should this
Here's what I'm doing:

rrdtool create test.rrd --start 0 --step 900 \
>         DS:prefixes:GAUGE:1800:0:U \
>         RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:192 \

rrdtool update prefixes.rrd \
>         993081600:1
ERROR: illegal attempt to update using time 993081600 when last update
time is 993096000 (minimum one second step)

But if I use a start time closer to the start of the data:
e.g. --start 990000000
the above update works.

Doesn't start time just specify that rrd shouldn't accept an update time
before that time?
