Default PE data processed by bwa

I am processing the PE solexa data using BWA, I met a problem after I looked through the sampe result.

Although I set the -a(maximum insert size) to be 300, I still found lots of PE mapped with the insertion > 300bp, some even around 5000bp. When I do the pileup, if these PE reads would be taken into consideration ?
or I should remove these reads manually?

At the same time, there are also some reads mapped without mate, they are still in the sampe file, will they be taken into account when I do the pileup ?

All in all, will all the mapped reads(even not in pair or have anomalous insertion distance) in the sampe will be used in the pileup?

You should check FLAG 0x2 (see sam spec), not just looking at ISIZE. Anomalous pairs will used by pileup by default. But you can throw them away by:

Thanks, lh3.

if I want to use -F to filter out two Flags, or -f to keep two Flags, should I use -F 48, otherwise, I can run -F 4, and -F 8 separately.

I met the flag 87 with my pair-end data like I show below. I think it maybe due to two possibilities:
1, software bug.
2, The match was detected by Smith-Waterman for the unmapped mate.

No matter which is true, it would cause some problem with other softwares,for example, when i use Tablet to visualize the mapping, the flag will crash the loading.
