I believe I have recently answered this...

Let's try again, in a different fashion:

One line is 1.000000005
One line is 1.000000004
One line is 1.000000003
One line is 1.000000002
One line is 1.000000001

RRDtool only displays a couple of digits:

One line is 1.000000005  -->  1.000
One line is 1.000000004  -->  1.000
One line is 1.000000003  -->  1.000
One line is 1.000000002  -->  1.000
One line is 1.000000001  -->  1.000

There is an option to use which gives better results. I don't
remember exactly which one it is, please see the manual page
for rrdtool graph.
