We'd first of all need to understand how this rather odd behavior
can be explained. In order to have a better comparison basis, did
you also do this for traditional PV? Or maybe I misunderstand
what PVM stands for, and am mixing it up with PVH? You certainly
agree that the two curves for what you call PVM have quite
unusual a relationship.
