It was more then PCP_COUNTER_WRAP - I've had to fix a bug with gif
generation (I think sometime around 2007) for people who do things
which go "woooosh": pmchart was generating graphs with missing samples
and COUNTER_WRAP did not solve it for them. I cannot remember all

A handful at best. And some of them are on irix, which makes the
arguments even less important.

In the batch mode too?

No, I mean the way windows were layed out in pmchart - there were
people relying on this layout to insert the images generated by

It's true but I really don't think that getting into the game of
implementing pmchart bugs in kmchart is a good idea but in the end
you're the one who does most (all?) of the work, so it's your call.
