Here an update to the last patch, that fixes the following problems:

* multiple tables can be used as a joined datasource for a graph (most 
usefull to have a separate small dynamic table and a huge static table).
* /derive option now gives accurate results when graphing longer 
timespans for MIN/MAX.
* workaround for mysql bug 18165 - now using <start> < timestamp and 
timestamp < <end> instead of BETWEEN
* SQL statement changes for better performance
* /prediction and /sigma are now synonyms and return now value, 
prediction and sigma in one go, which reduces strain on the database 
(simmilar selects are now done once and not 3 times) and is more efficient
* allows now for %XX escaping some of the arguments.

This has been tested on a system with tables of more that 100M rows and 
65k different datasources...


P.s: do not forget to execute "autoconf", "automake" and "configure" 
after applying the patch to 1.2.15!
