How large are the RRD files? The gist of the post, as I understand it,  
is that you may be bumping up against OS size limits when trying to  
access the higher parts of the rrd file. The files are too big for  
your OS in other words. You may be able to offset that by using more  
files with less RRAs or an OS that allows for larger files.
