[rrd-users] confusing errors

I'm using rrdtool 1.26 for win32, and I think the error messages are too 
cofusing and don't help at all.

Consider this scenario: create a DEF, use it to create a VDEF, then use 

if my DEF can't be read (e.g. no RRA matches CF), the error is "garbage 
near GPRINT", making me think that my GPRINT is wrong.

After reading the manual lots and lots of times, following examples and 
recreating the command, I decided deleted the GRPRINT command and then 
it said that there was an error near VDEF command, deleting it I found 
out that I put the wrong RRA in DEF command.

rrdtool certainly could tell me this error sooner....
