Dear GATK team,

I think I found a bug as shown in the attached screenshot. The highlighted line of the vcf file after using UnifiedGenotyper, VariantRecalibrator, ApplyRecalibration, ReadBackedPhasing, SelectVariants, CombineVariants, and SnpEff (following Best Practices) shows

To be sure, I checked the two samples' bams at the PrintReads stage but do not see such a long indel.
Is this a potentially similar bug to ?

Thank you for your attention.
