Downloaded data different from on screen when sampling involved?

Hi,

 

Has anyone else noticed that sometimes downloading a report will return different data than what's shown on screen when segments/sampling is involved? Which is more accurate? Is this a bug? 

 

Also, I've noticed that sometimes the sampling bar will say "greater precision" but return the same results as "faster processing" (judging this based on the "This report is based on x% of data" message and actual data). Changing to "faster processing" and then back to "greater precision" usually fixes the issue, but wasn't sure if this was a known bug. 

 

Thanks,

Mike
