Why?  The ***rate*** between 19:55:24 and 20:00:37 isn't 11.  This rate
is 11/313 = 0.0351437699 (which is 3.5e-2).  The previous interval will
also be taken into account (between 19:55:00 and 19:55:24).  The weighted
average of the two rates is going to the average RRA, the maximum rate is
going in the maximum RRA.

Also see the FAQ, notably the first two parts ( "Intro" and "More" ).
