The data TSVN shows you is the actual data, without any headers,
authentication traffic, ...
It is the DATA that's transferred.

TCPView and other similar utilities measure TCP traffic, which is
something completely different. Those do not understand what data is
transferred with the TCP protocol, so they do not know what is data
and what is header, what is real data and what is data used for
authentication and other stuff.

And no: you should not file an issue for this. Because it is not a bug.
