Creating a new RRD independently of rrdcached is fine (I've done it here -- MRTG running with rrdcached over UNIX sockets will create directly but update via rrdcached).  The problems occur if you update an RRD both via rrdcached and directly.  RRDcached goes and looks for the rrd file when the updates come in, I believe.
