Add better handling of NaN Y values to XYCharts

Hi Frederic,

If you want to contribute a fix for these two issues, along with 
appropriate unit tests, then please go ahead. I don't know of any 
technical reasons that would get in the way. I looked at the history of 
this bug, and there is nothing unusual about it. They are just two of 
many P4 bugs that never bubbled up high enough in priority to fix.
