I would change those names, I', not sure whether numeric only names are valid or not, but it can certainly cause confusion later. Try changing them to (say) p1 and p2 and see what happens.

If that doesn't fix it, then you need to create a test case to re-create the problem. Create a new RRD, and insert a set of fixed (and hence repeatable) values into it.
