somehow a value with the timestamp "1285669914" is submitted to the
daemon. The daemon checks its internal cache and finds out that the last
data received for this metric is "1285669915" -- i.e. the "new" value is
older than the value before that.

The most common cause for this is that the metric is collected twice.
Maybe the name isn't unique or maybe you're running two instances of
collectd on a client machine.
