If I got it right, the way MAX/MIN works is a design decision then. Why 
was it so hard to say so?

I still don't see why it should be wrong or hard to keep the actual 
max/min value instead of just an average, and I'm not willing to dig the 
mail archives searching for the answer tha Alex is keeping to himself, 
so I will just accept things as they are and adopt a workaround.

Thank you for your time.

My comments were intended to help make rrdtool better (from my point of 
view of course). I don't see why Alex is taking this matter so 
personally. "The difference between you and me", dear Alex, should not 
matter to this mailing list, and it sure doesn't matter to me.
