This means there was an update done at time 1039622235.  You are
trying to update at time 1039622171.  This is *before* the last
update to the database.  RRDtool is telling you this isn't possible.

1) You cannot update data that's already in the database.
2) RRDtool has to fill in any missing data (by design)

3=1+2) You have to enter data in sequence.

There's nothing wrong with entering data at another time, just
make sure you don't update with "now" and only then start updating
the historic data.
