Hmm, it does help a little bit.

It still has some problems though.
Sliding the wms layer doesn't move the whole layer but only one of the
downloaded wms tiles...and if they're overlapping it will move only the
lower one.
And, downloading more wms data will still be offset so you have to match
it up with the previous tiles.  Yuck.  Fixing this problem would solve
the previous one as well, since you'd only need to move it once.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
