G71 not retracting straight back along Z

This is the complete toolpath in OD machining. I expect a similar toolpath in ID machining.

Fixed! Parameter 01401.1 (LRP) = 0

Mine was set to 1
This parameter is for straight-line positioning with G00, i.e., without showing dogleg effect when its value is 1.
You will now have to be careful with G00 which will always show dogleg effect.

Unfortunately this parameter affects how g71 retracts are handled. At least now I can stop breaking inserts!
 
I cannot see how this parameter affects what you desired.
But, if it indeed works, there are reasons to be happy.

I could not see it either until I stood at my machine, ran it, and watched the numbers on the control change. Believe me, it affects it!
