Month number 10 is when daylight saving ends. On the last Sunday,
at 01:00 UTC, wallclock time changes from 03:00 to 02:00.
This means October is one hour longer than it would normally be.
If it's "October 1st 00:00" at the beginning of the month, then
after 31 times 24 hours it is "October 31st 23:00".

Try changing your x-axis label definition, especially the part

I didn't try it, but I think you are placing labels at the wrong
place and thus suffer from this "problem" (not really a problem,
because if I'm right, you are asking RRDtool to do this).
