unfortunately, it appears that graph generation isn't the only thing
that slowed down from 1.3 to 1.4. With RRDtool 1.4, an update causes *a
lot more* data to be read from disk than RRDtool 1.3 does. This results
in a slowdown from ~40 writes per second (RRDtool 1.3) to ~15 writes per
second (RRDtool 1.4) on the same machine.

I do not yet know what the cause of this is, but I'll try to track that
