[collectd] warning on startup indeed happens

Hello collectd mailinglist,

I'm running collectd-4.6.2 on CentOS-5.3. The source code suggests
the following warning has happened only once, but it also shows up
for my setup directly on bootup:

May  2 23:58:21 http collectd[1039]: rrdtool plugin: cache == NULL.
May  2 23:58:22 http last message repeated 32 times

I used to see startup problems where collectd died right on bootup in
the past, but the current version seems to run very stable.

Thanks for collectd, a really nice tool,

Florian La Roche
