First of all:  That space between "rrd" and ":size" does not belong there.

Altered example DEF to fit on one line:

DEF:u=/path/<RRD::CV::QUOTE share>.rrd:size:AVERAGE

Things to try:

   "DEF:u=/path/<RRD::CV::QUOTE share>.rrd:size:AVERAGE"
   DEF:u="/path/<RRD::CV::QUOTE share>.rrd":size:AVERAGE

Alter the variable "share" to say
"part1%20part2" in stead of "part1 part2"

introduced by a mail-client (mine probably - I'm at work and so using

I've tried the two varieties of quoting and they made no difference :-(

My script was already encoding "Co Totals" as "Co+Totals" so I tweaked it to
