ERROR: Garbage ':40:45 2005]\l' after command:

The problem line is this:


The commands to librrds are delimted by colons, localtime (in scalar

librrds on sarge swallows the colons fine (for the COMMENT field), the Ubuntu version does not.

Patch for ubuntu version:

If Jason reports back on this issue (which is fixed in the version in Dapper), he should reopen.

I just had this exact same problem on edgy. I found the following log line to be more interesting than the one originally provided.
