Indeed, there's two bugs here - one is that the lat/lon/scale values  
aren't always passed through from the main Rails site to the SWF, the  
second is that there's a slight mismatch even when they are. The first  
one should be fixable by anyone with Ruby clue, haven't got to the  
bottom of the second one yet.

Yup. I need to figure out how to get the SWF to call the JavaScript to  
update the 'View' link - there is definitely a way to do it, just  
haven't had chance to figure it out yet.

Mmm, yes, a few of the tolerances/scales are off throughout the editor  
(SteveC mentioned, too, that it's too easy to drag the map a fraction  
when you think you've just clicked). It's on the list.

Not at all, you're all the best bug-testers I could wish for. :)
