Escaping the colon

In a ':' in a legend argument will mark the end of the legend. To enter a 
':' into a legend, the colon must be escaped with a backslash '\:'. Beware, 
that many environments look for backslashes themselves, so it may be 
necessary to write two backslashes so that one is passed onto rrdgraph.
