My traffic monitoring script grabs a value from iptables in Bytes and my rrdtool graphs are generated with a base of 1024 ("-b 1024"), however, when using %s rrdtool always uses a lower case 'k' to denote kilo, whereas I'd expect it to use K to show the base at 1024.

k and K do not mean kilo==1000 vs. kilo==1024.  K means Kelvin.
