cacti broken in 6.3?

I started a long thread at but it 
turns out that FreeBSD 6.3 might be the problem. FreeBSD 6.2 and 7.0-RC1 
(see below) are not affected. Here is what I did:

I had an existing cacti infrastructure/cacti server on FreeBSD 6.2. 
Everything was fine and I upraded to 6.3-RELEASE a few days ago. I 
recognized that I can't query some values anymore.

These values are e.g.:

SNMP - Get Mounted Partitions
SNMP - Get Processor Information

Both show "Success [0 Items, 0 Rows]" even when querying localhost. I tried 
on 3 different hosts (all running 6.3-RELEASE).

Now I set up two virtual machines, one with 6.2-RELEASE-p10 and one with 
7.0-RC1. Both query the same targets as the 6.3 ones do and return the 
expected value:

Success [33 Items, 11 Rows]
Success [1 Item, 1 Row]

I read about the problem with 6.3 and nagios 
( and now I'm 
wondering if there is a similar problem with cacti.

Can anyone confirm/disprove? I already recompiled all of the cacti stuff 
recursive without success. As said before, on 6.2 and 7.0 cacti still works 
fine but due to lack of time I wasn't able to set up 6.3 in a VM from 
scratch yet.

Thanks, Helmut
