The "-t" option specifies the template to use, which is in param03 -
"pct:used". Param 04 is the actual data to insert, starting with the
date/time in seconds (i.e. 1196446447), then zero for the "pct" value, then
zero for the "used" value.
This stuff may not help much, but maybe it will show where the data goes
weird - i.e. is hobbitd_rrd being handed bad data, or does it get corrupted
