Oil low....but isn't?

I noticed my oil level ignition warning was showing I was low on oil today (for the first time ever) so dipped it to see how low I was only to find it was spot on the max as it has been since my last oil change.

Is this a common problem because in my experience the oil level shows accurately?

159 1.9d Lusso SW by the way.

I'm told it can depend on how much is in the sump or if the engine is warm. Had mine serviced last week and the sensor was clearly wrong as it only had several bars showing. Best to just keep checking the dip-stick. It's about the only thing you can do on modern cars now anyway!
