Another item related to this, is that when the Intraday Data Storage Time Unit is set to 1 Second or higher, the Chart >> Chart Settings >> Split Data Records option is enabled, the chart bars are based upon Number of Trades or Volume Bars, this would result in repeating bars as documented here:

In version 2086 and higher, there are no longer repeating bars, but just the last trade price repeats. So this gives a better appearance. You can also uncheck Split Data Records to avoid this problem altogether.
