Should I attempt to manually fix these ways? Since I don't know what
caused the problem in the first place, I'm afraid to touch anything.
Looking at the specific problems, I think that most of the points I
touched during one longish editing session got moved several miles
away (and all by the same amount). Some points from the session
did not get relocated. For example, 6346890, Sotelo Ave is still fine.
I was using Potlach. Thinking back, the thing I did differently this time
is that I did almost all of my editing while using flash-zoom.
