Brian, Peter & Others,

Thank you very much for your help. The rounding was definitely part of the problem with chart.CumReturns and I had also wrongly assumed CumReturns would work with compound/log return whereas it takes in actual/simple returns.

Thanks again for the great package.

THe bug was fixed on 2 Apr, 2012, in svn r1894, which is *after* the
last CRAN release.  You should use the R-Forge version, currently here:

install.packages("PerformanceAnalytics", repos=
c("http://R-Forge.R-project.org", getOption("repos")))

(assuming that the R-Forge build process hasn't failed, as it often
seems to)
