You've shutdown hostmon and restarted it, correct?

Do you have any other perl monitors that are working with RRD? (apcmon,
armon, bgpmon, bpmon, ciscomon, snmpmon, sqlmon, syslogon, upsmon...
just to name a few).

You can try toggling debug to 2 or more in hostmon and restarting it...
that may not print the RRDTOOL setting, though.  Myself, I've sometimes
just retyped the config lines to try to get rid of any hidden characters
in there (such as a hidden character and backspace or the like), as the
regular expression, while not case or whitespace sensitive, might be
catching something else.

Hope that helps... if not, I'll have to look deeper.
