[OSM-talk] Josm: bug in Simplify Way?

I use regularly the Simplify Way feature in Josm before uploading 
tracks acquired at 10 m samples.

Today I noticed that the funcion over-simplify a trace: the worst 
node in the resulting way is more than 200 m far from the 
original track!

Here [1] you can see a screenshot of the simplified way above the 
original GPX track, look at the scale!

Here [2] it is the offending way, so you can test it.

Should I open a ticket?

I use the latest Josm (v. 716) with updated plugins, on Linux 
with SUN Java 1.6.0.
