Yeah, the y-axis scale is logarithmic so the positive and negative differences are scaled differently depending where on the log scale the point is. Those right around a decade change will be most noticeable as the change in scale is most pronounced.
The two particular points at the middle are such that the error magnitude is greater than or equal to the value so the lower error bar location is zero or negative. Can't plot nonpositive numbers on a log scale; errorbar silently just doesn't plot those whiskers. Probably should give a warning message; plot will, but errorbar doesn't.
and a revelation will occur! :)
