I believe the following code should illustrate my issue. With the errors given in the y-direction, I would expect errorbars going from 3 to 23. Instead, my output plot gives me something like 4 to 50...

ErrorListLogPlot[{{{5, 8}, ErrorBar[{1, -1}, {15, -5}]}}, 
PlotRange -> {{2, 10}, {1, 70}}, Frame -> True, 
PlotMarkers -> {{\[FilledCircle], 15}}, PlotStyle -> {{Darker[Red]}}]

If I instead of {15, -5} use errors of {1, -1} it seems to work fine. Any idea of what's going on?

Using Mathematica, student version. Running Ubuntu 12.04.

ErrorListLogPlot is not included in the default Mathematica distribution. Where have you taken it? –  Alexey Popkov Aug 16 '13 at 2:51
Maybe you'd be better off not using that package (I believe it's the one from the Wolfram Library, and it may be obsolete). There are some alternatives posted in this Q&A. –  Jens Aug 16 '13 at 4:02
Ah. You guys are probably correct. I didn't realize that the package was for an older version of Mathematica. Too bad something like this is not included in the default distribution though. –  GOt Aug 16 '13 at 15:52
@Jens I remember now that I actually found the package under the first answer of the Q&A you linked to. Maybe it would be a good idea to leave a comment there pointing out that the package might be obsolete? –  GOt Aug 16 '13 at 16:08
