Potlatch moves nodes without touching them

While editing country names using the Multilingual Country-List*, it's becoming apparent that Potlatch moves nodes ever so slightly, without even touching the node. It's apparent because using the JOSM link on that page centers on the exact coordinates it last saw the country node. If it was edited by a Potlatch user in the mean time, the node has moved slightly off that coordinate.

I tested this myself by editing a few in Potlatch. The Potlatch link on said page opens Potlatch with the country node selected. I never click it, but just add a new name:xx key and then click on an empty spot on the canvas to save the change. Checking the history then shows that the node coordinates were changed.

Example for Russia (

19 64.6863033, 97.7453216 (Potlatch)
18 64.6863003, 97.7453221 (JOSM)
12 64.6863003, 97.7453221 (Potlatch)
11 64.6862985, 97.7453237 (JOSM)
9 64.6862985, 97.7453237 (Potlatch)
8 64.6862964, 97.7453264 (JOSM)
5 64.6862964, 97.7453264 (Potlatch)
4 64.6862927, 97.7453312 (JOSM)

But it's happening in every case, for every country node edit at least.
