[Nagiosplug-help] Perfdata Output

I have helped write/maintain the check_rrdtraf Nagios plugin, and a  
while ago I added in a perf data output to the plugin. I just had a  
user write in stating that they are getting the following error in  
their perfdata.log:

  Perfdata is not valid ( in=21.292222Kb/s;1000000;5000000  
out=13.883771Kb/s;1000000;5000000  )

Now I think that the data follows the plugin guidelines, and as such  
I would think it should be valid. On the other hand, though, I know  
essentially nothing about perf data other than what it is and what it  
is used for, as I have never made use of it myself, so I can't really  
claim to know what I am talking about here :) Would someone who knows  
a bit about perf data be willing to take a look at it, at least to  
the extent of letting me know if the problem is with my code or the  
end users setup? I'll be working on trying to figure it out myself,  
but I thought I'd ask in the meantime. Thanks.
