i just upgraded from collectd 5.4 to 5.7. after i did that, my rrd files
were not updated anymore. now i see this in the logs:

Feb 28 15:07:24 david collectd[18815]: Filter subsystem: Built-in target
`write': Dispatching value to all write plugins failed with status -1.

Feb 28 15:07:34 david collectd[18815]: Filter subsystem: Built-in target
`write': Some write plugin is back to normal operation. `write' succeeded.

I found
(which talks about the errorcode 2, not -1 as i get).

this is my condensed collectd.conf file.
