Only if you REALLY want to have the information from the line
that was too long, as I believe Nawk will drop overly-long

my guess is that either you missed an rrd file, or something is dumping
a single long line.  If you could figure out which file has that
line in it and see if you can tell anything by looking at it, maybe
that would answer both questions...  (That is: How, and do I care)

Since its from orcallator, it sounds like the input to orcallator
is too big (at line 121)....  I'd start looking at 'whoever'
creates the input for orcallator.

This is probably not much help, sorry!
