Cheers Ryan!

Yes, these are mate-pairs (That is why I expected this insert size). Is it really important for mapper to know that the library is mate-pair library? It is already post-processed - therefore only difference to pair-end library is the insert size...

I have not realized before, that they do not point to each other. If this is the reason, what is the interpretation of this observation? Because there are about half of pairs without flag 2 (I have to check if all of them are pointing away from each other)
