DP statistic matches bamfile before realignment and not the bamout file
I am using GATK version 3.3 and I noticed that the numbers in the DP and AD fields actually match the original bam file before realignment and does not match the bamout file produced by haplotype caller. For example, at chromosome 1 position 6253228 the DP is 27 and the AD is 27,0. The number of reads (counted by IGV) in the original bam file at that position is also 27. However, in the "bamout" bam file the number of reads is 56. Below is the line from the VCF file.
chr1 6253228 . C . . . GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/0:27,0:27:75:0,75,1125
Is the DP and AD fields supposed to match the original bamfile or the bamout bam file numbers? When I produce the "bamout" bamfile I use parameters -forceActive and -disableOptimizations.
