Your problem was a bit different I think. Iso-8859-1 does contain german
I think the problem here is that rrdtool wants single-byte characters. The
input may be something else (UTF-8 for instance).
Now, how to solve this is another matter. For that it is probably best to
ask people with experience.
What I did to test:
for i in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
for j in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
for k in 2 3
echo -ne \\$k$j$i > testfile.sh
vi -b testfile.sh
(binary edit, create a script for rrdtool)
Hardly the way one wants to do this I guess.

It will make a difference, but not for the better :)
I ask you to respect any "Reply-To" and "Mail-Follow-Up" headers. If
you reply to me off-list, you'd better tell me you're doing so. If
you don't, and if I reply to the list, that's your problem, not mine.
