I had a very similar issue, but I found that my problem was not the floating, so yours may be different,but the issue I ran into was that I could update manually, but when RRD::update did it ,it could not update with leading or trailing whitespaces.  This is my solution:
chomp $variable;
$variable =~ s/(^ *)||( *$)//g;

I know it's redundant, but it works.  Do this to the variables you are updating and it might help. Good luck
