I have now been in touch with mrtg-rrd's author Yenya, and it indeed
looks like a caching problem in my browswer, Netscape Navigator 4.77.
So far IE handles it OK, but I'll test a couple other browsers, too.  

I didn't have this problem with NN 4.77 and MRTG because MRTG uses a
different refresh mechanism than does mrtg-rrd.

My poor choice of words: obviously MRTG is not "real time", but I
meant I sometimes need to keep current with a particular graph,
watching it refresh over several minutes to hours.
