Adding to what Guy said -

The system stores your chart for a limited period time after you create 
it.  This stored version is periodically deleted. The system checks when 
you accessed the data last and is deleted and started over if it is 
longer than a certain time frame.  Guy told me that these stat caching 
problems will fix themselves if you avoid clicking on the stat/chrt 
button for 24-36 hours.  The system will clear the cached data away and 
start over from scratch.
