[PD] waveshaping with a lookup table (idiot question)

hi all,
i'm new here, and with pd generally. ive been doing my best not to ask 
too many idiot questions but here's the first..

i'm attempting waveshaping using a lookup table and tabread4~. my table 
contains a linear ramp at the moment. but:

what i've noticed though is with a small table (100 points) i get a 
distortion that sounds like bit-depth reduction. it goes with a larger 
table. surely though, if tabread4~ interpolates this shouldn't happen? 
have i just made a buggy patch or is there a finer point i'm missing?
