Just to say that I emailed Nick because I had the same problem in St Albans
when I very carefully align it in a particular area and it is completely off
not far from there:
It happens in quite a small area, though it looks like a slight fold in the
paper might be partly to blame. It does also happen in small residential
areas, though, where some roads just seem wrong. Ah well, it's useful for
some things and looks really good, and I'm sure it's not a projection issue
on Nick's part since it would have to look obviously distorted if it were.
