I also checked the bigtops.pl output against my old 1.0.49 installation.  The bigtops.png on the 1.2.12 install has the colored squares next to "beta" and "alpha" in black with maybe just the edge pixels of the square being in color, plus these huge, narrow black X's extended up from the squares clear to the top of the image.  Very odd.

Will be looking forward to version 1.3.  I have a home-brewed app that tracks temp and humidity in our computer rooms and another guy is trying to get the Cacti network monitor working.  Everthing is find except for the .png output.  The .pdf output looks fine but is awkward to use.  Apparrently Cacti needs rrdtool 1.2.x to work correctly so he can't use my old rrdtool 1.0.49 install.

rrdtool is good stuff.  We also run orca to track performance on our Sun boxes...  Thank you for all your work.
