See http://www.vandenbogaerdt.nl/rrdtool/process.php where 
normalisation is explained. You will only get out exactly what you 
put in under certain very specific conditions which are :

1) You must insert data on timestamps which are EXACTLY a multiple of 
the step size since unix epoch (midnight, 1st Jan 1970)

2) You extract the data such that you ask for EXACTLY one data point 
per output (eg graph pixel)

If either of these is not met then the data will be normalised to fit 
what you ask for and will not match the values you put in.

What do you mean by 0X0 ?
