Well, this is quite obvious: If the main loop takes more than
COLLECTD_HEARTBEAT seconds to finish only few rrd updates will happen during
that time and the value is assumed to be "unknown" in most cases. You still
get a valid value any once in a while but this is not sufficient for any
graphs or the like.

Um... I really do not like userspace thread libraries. pthreads are defined as
a POSIX standard and should be available on all platforms collectd is
currently running on. Does anybody know of any specific problems that would
arise from the use of pthreads?
