Your problem is that you are doing the `cat /tmp/rrdgraph` in the middle.

This is expanding out the quotes in advance for some reason and by the time it gets to rrdtool the 
AREA:var1#FF5C00:"Round Trip Times "
has been turned into
AREA:var1#FF5C00:Round Trip Times 
and is taken as three separate arguments, which of course is wrong.  You may need to consider using multiple quotes, or backticks to escape the spaces, or something.
