Basic Question about the Cube Information Dialog Box in XG

I am sure that I am just missing something very basic here but I am a bit confused as to how to interpret the Market Window tab in the Cube Information dialog box.
My understanding is that the 'Double Point' number is that %age of games that would need to be won for a cube to be appropriate in a given position. Seems simple enough. So, when the position is analyzed as having a live cube double point of 'X%' say, then anything over X (short of Too Good) should be a good double.
Yet my interpretation here is incorrect because that is not the way things work out. For example, I set up a non-gammonish racing position (just to keep things simple) with the leader 2 away and the trailer 3 away. The double point at that match score for the leader is 66.7%. But if I try to double in a position where the leader is only 67% to win it is a large blunder (-.167).
My thanks in advance if someone could point out where my misunderstanding is.
