I'm trying to move a dataset from one platform to another.
The rrdtool restore from version 1.2.27 appears to work for me, but not
the one from version 1.3.0.


The source platform created the dataset using rrdtool 1.0.49.

I use rrdtool 1.0.49 on the source platform to dump it as follows:
   rrdtool dump foo.rrd > foo.xml

On the target platform, I try to restore the dataset
using rrdtool 1.3.0, but instead encounter this error:
  rrdtool restore foo.xml foo.rrd
  ERROR: parse_tag_rra: Unknown tag: xff

When I instead use rrdtool 1.2.27 on the target platform to perform
the restore, it appears to work fine.

source platform: Solaris 9 on sparc, rrdtool 1.0.49 built with gcc 3.3.3
target platform: Solaris 10 on sparc, rrdtool 1.3.0 (or 1.2.27) built with gcc 4.2.3
