Over the past ~7 years I have checked all evaluation functions several times with all kinds of different approaches. In fact, I just did so again about an hour ago. Also, if the OESD stat would be off by ~1% there's a ~100% chance that someone would have noticed over the past ~7 years. Finally, the engine gives the exact same results that have been used in literature for years upon years. So all in all, I don't really see how this could be a bug.
It seems the issue is the with headings and what they actually mean. If you count all 8 card straight draws as open ended straight draws (OESD), then the 50.60% number is right on. This hand has 2 double gutters that make up the difference from the 50.06% when you only count open ended straights
