What you could do to identify the problem is to write a wrapper script
around rrdtool.  This way you can log the parameters it receives from

Something in the line of
(where "/path/to" is the location of rrdtool
and "^D" is press control and D simultaniously)
   cd /path/to
   mv rrdtool real.rrdtool
   cat > rrdtool
   echo "$@" >> rrdtool_parameters
   chmod 755 rrdtool

After logging the command lines it may already be obvious what's going
wrong.  If not, repost.
