Oh, I'm getting the sFlow counters of this particular device fixed, so
in that sense my problem will go away.  I want to use sFlow because it
gives one "all" the counters at once rather than requiring multiple,
discrete SNMP requests.  It was just interesting to me that this was
happening with the 32-bit wrapping and figured it was a good opportunity
to make sure that rrd was robust in this regard.
