Description

When "Show wicks" is selected for renko bar charts, instead of just getting high and low wicks as expected, there are additional bars of zero height between most bars, completely throwing off the bars and indicators.
This issue is with MultiCharts 8.0 beta 3 32 bit,
but the Project Manager doesn't have that version on its list (please add it).

Steps to reproduce this issue

Create a Renko chart.  Select "show wicks".  It may also help to figure out what is going on to change the style to candlestick so the wicks are visible.  As you can see, you get not only the normal bars with wicks but a bunch of extra bars between them of zero height as shown in the attached image.

Also, the open to close height of the renko bars in this mode are frequently wrong. Bars should always be the specified distance between open and close, yet I am seeing some bars that are twice as long!
