[rrd-users] Problem with update

I'm trying to use the latest released rrdtool for win32 but unfortunatly
it's giving me lots of problems when I call 'update':

I have the following:

rrdtool create testdev.rrd --start 1139092680-60 --step 60
DS:f1:GAUGE:1:0:5 DS:f5:GAUGE:1:0:5 DS:f8:GAUGE:1:0:5 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:10

I'm trying to create 3 sets f1, f5 and f8. Then I set the current time
value (minus step) and then a stepping of 1 minute. The values are
expected to be 0 to 5 and I want 10 rows in the db.

So far so good.

Then I call:

rrdtool update testdev.rrd 1139092680:2:0:0

and the program accepts it. However the database is still empty. When I do
a dump to a xml file it says NaN for the specific value. The database
access time has been updated though so I'm not allowed to reuse the same

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
