That sounds very strange. Since the forecast support two very different
modes it would be interesting, which one of them you are using:

a) Scheduled, based on scheduled transactions
b) History, based on the recent history

On top of that there is a set of more parameters to tweak the forecast.
All of them may have some influence in your case.

What happens if you 'play' with those parameters?

Oh, and to answer your question: the user list might be an appropriate
place to ask (as is the forum) until we make sure, that this is really
a software bug.
