Strange behavior of Conky

Weird thing with Conky 1.5.1...

I can display diskio for /dev/sda.... I can even display diskio for /dev/sda1 but not for /dev/sda3.

Both partitions are in ext3, but while /dev/sda1 shows activity on that partition, for /dev/sda3 show nothing.

Here's the conkyrc part:
${color yellow}$stippled_hr
${color red}Disk Activity
${color yellow}/System  ${color green}${goto 105} ${diskio_read /dev/sda1} ${goto 200}${color red}${alignr 0}${disk
io_write /dev/sda1}
${color green}${diskiograph_read /dev/sda1 12,120} ${color red}${goto 130} ${diskiograph_write /dev/sda1 12,120}
${color yellow}/Home  ${color green}${goto 105} ${diskio_read /dev/sda3} ${goto 200}${color red}${alignr 0}${diskio
_write /dev/sda3}
${color green}${diskiograph_read /dev/sda3 12,120} ${color red}${goto 130} ${diskiograph_write /dev/sda3 12,120}
Using other software to monitor disk activity works (I've used Gkrellm)

Any tip is welcome

PS: A look into dmesg shows the following... (don't know if might be of any help)
conky[7686]: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 00002b3a10caabf0 rsp 00007fff9b6345b8 error 4
PS2: Things are getting even more weird. I can get IO on /dev/sda3 as long as I have any of my 2 external harddrives swithced on (not mounted, just on). If I shutdown the external harddrive, Conky stops displaying IOs on /dev/sda3 (?????)
