For the first case:

   step scale factor = 1
   allowed value step = 2 * 1 = 2
   step base = 0
   value as number = -1
   step base - value as number = 1
   is 1 an integral multiple of 2? no
   => suffering from a step mismatch

For the second case:

   step scale factor = 2
   allowed value step = 2 * 1 = 2
   step base = 0
   value as number = 5
   step base - value as number = -5
   is -5 an integral multiple of 2? no
   => suffering from a step mismatch

So yes, in both cases it's suffering from a step mismatch. The value's 
position with respect to min and max has no effect.

HTH,
