eSignal Market Profile discrepancies


I'm going to use this topic to log discrepancies between eSignal's Market Profile chart and the data/singles that are generated by the DVATool. This is part of my software testing and debugging procedure. If a user questions the differences between (say) the DVATool and the data that they see on eSignal's Market Profile then this is a good point to have a look at examples which may show the differences and why they differ. In a separate topic, eSignal have confirmed this to be a problem for some users (such as myself) and are looking into the problem.
This blue vertical line on the bar chart is the last bar in the H bracket.

Good news from eSignal is that they believe that the bug may be gone in Build 726 or later of eSignal when it is released. I haven't been given a release date yet but Build 724 is coming out in next few days and it will be the release after that. Here is the thread that I read the above information in:
