The lofted spline has issues. Try adjusting the vertex type / bezier handles and see if that changes things.

How very strange. I clicked on the thumbnail to get a better look at th problem and there was one of my old photos from about 2 centuries ago on the page, he he. What are the odds eh........

As far as your problem, I think its to do with the spline that you are using as the shape to loft. I think I've cured this before by moving the pivot point ( centre axis thing) to the very end of the spline, you can use the pivot snap too to get it accurate. I think what its doing now is sweeping the spline thinking that the centre is the furthest point out. So moving the pivot and re lofting should do the trick. If it doesn't, select the spline operand and manually move it so that the end is on the corner point, not the middle.
