We're using RRDtool 1.4.99912102900


$ rrdtool graph 1.png --daemon <ip>:<port> "DEF:In=blabla"
"LINE1:In#00FF00:in" "COMMENT:lala\:lala"

Produces a literal "lala\:lala" comment on the graph.

Using "COMMENT:lala:lala" produces an error:
ERROR: Unused Arguments in COMMENT:lala:lala: ��yi6pos2=lala

Adding more slashes, i.e. "COMMENT:lala\\\:lala" just multiplies them on the

Basically we are unable to find a way to print just ":" in the comment.

Appreciate your help on this.
