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.

Was your car parked on a hill, slope or slight gradient prior to starting her up? My light came on last week as the car was parked sloping downwards towards the front drivers side. the light came on when i started her up and did not reset till i had turn it off and started it again after a journey. did it again every day after using the same parking spot while on holiday. light does not reset until restarted after engine has warmed up.
