Which file should I attach? I did attach the file showing the weird cut that is being added at the end of the 1/4" tool cut. Did you want the Toolpath file?

In other words, draw a similar pocket, put it in a rectangle and away you go. That way you will get all sorts of help around here.

It is doing this because you are using a .25" cutter to get the desired radius in the corners and using an 1.5" clearance tool.
It is computing enough clearance for the larger radius of the clearance tool.
To prove this, I reduced the size of the clearance tool to .5' and the problem all but went away.
And yes, do your clearance cut first and reduce your stepover to 50% or less and your problem will go away.
Just my $.02

1.) Change the toolpath order (Why are you changing the order after it is created? Just curious as to why you are changing it!)
2.) Change the stepover of the 1.5 dia bit to 50% to 75%
And I think this may solve your problem.
