There's a "-u 1.0" missing in the hobbitgraph.cfg config for the "la"
graph, causing it to dynamically adjust the Y-axis graph when your
load is low. Changing it as follows should fix it:

        TITLE CPU Load
        YAXIS Load
        AREA:la#00CC00:CPU Load Average
        -u 1.0
        GPRINT:la:LAST: \: %5.1lf (cur)
        GPRINT:la:MAX: \: %5.1lf (max)
        GPRINT:la:MIN: \: %5.1lf (min)
        GPRINT:la:AVERAGE: \: %5.1lf (avg)\n
