I don't know how the "rectified waveform view" computes its data to display, 
but "if" it is using only the positive part or an average of positive and 
negative part, this could very well mean that the negative part of the signal 
is clipping while the positive part is not. I would look at the same region 
in normal view mode to see what is really going on there.
Also note that the rectified view doesn't show dc-offsets...
