Time lag between IB TWS and MC price marker

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

Sometimes the chart window price marker (set to "trade") shows a time lag compared to IB TWS. There is no time lag for Bid / Ask, and the issue does not show in the DOM window.
When the time lag occurs, I can resolve it in most cases by restarting MultiCharts. I am not able to consistently reproduce the issue, which occurs around 20 - 30 % of MultiCharts launches. Once MultiCharts is launched and no time lag shows, it will not occur for the rest of the session.
My MC version is MC64 9.1 (Build 12587)
Please see the link below for a demo of the issue.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Launch IB TWS
Launch MultiCharts
Open Chart window with price marker set to "Trade"
Check TWS last price with MultiCharts last price marker for time lag

I couldn't open the demo video but it seems the same issue occurred to my MC.Net64 10 beta2. I will send you screenshots of the chart and IB settings.
