Pen turning question

>I know I have read the answer to this somewhere, but know I cannot find it. When turning on a standard mandrel with the normal bushings, what does it mean when the barrels come out something less than perfectly round? ie. the cross section is slightly oval. Is the mandrel bent from too much/not enough pressure?
