Is this a graphing glitch perhaps from a rounding error or is there actually an errant trade that happens at that pricepoint?  The order book is not light enough to allow a legitimate trade at those prices.  

Does anyone have an idea?

My guess is that because mtgox system doesn't really sell you every BTC at the exact price you have entered. For example, when you trying to buy 10 BTC for $17, it can execute like this:
5 BTC @ $15
5 BTC @ $19

So they still average out to 10 BTC @ $17, but the trade history display them as $15 and $19 trades

If my post has been helpful, send me some love -> BTC: 1kokojUapmWqCqPw3Ch2rjcVh57tJEzka | PPC: PDyXAgA8eH47gokVW6zVZPSuu15aao5nZF | Bitshares: kokojie

That wouldn't make sense.  The market is pretty deep on both sides and requires a large amount of transactions to move prices.  Now is a bad example but it would take 3000 trades to go over 17 and ~ 1500 to dip below 16.  It's a bug so for some reason they must be matching the remainders in a strange way leading to these crazy numbers.
