Before hazarding a guess at what you are asking I would appreciate
seeing the actual SQL statements and their output that demonstrate
the issue.

Right now I am torn between one of the following:
1. You are looking at something normal and misinterpreting it.
2. You know just enough to be really dangerous
3. There is a problem but I can't tell precisely what it is.

Sorry I couldn't give you something else.
