You need to recompile rrdtool with 64bit libraries and make sure your filesystem supports 'Large' files before you can cope with this.  Even then, it is possible that the rrdtool source code is not strictly 64-bit clean (I haven't checked it so I don't know)

    Yeah, I was thinking; it contains a couple of things I don't 
*actually* use, and when I need them I can put'em into "access" (doors 
opening) seperate from "climate" and such.

    Thanks so much for your help!
