Photoshop: Center point off when dragging files onto existing document

I merge different version of HDR pictures by combining them in different layers in PS with varying opacity. I get the pictures into PS by dragging them from Windows Explorer - this adds each picture as a new layer. Problem is the centering is sometimes off. When it wrong it is always out by 2. E.g. (screenshot attached) I have three images of size 3619 x 2665. When I drag the second one into PS the center point is shown as X: 1811.50 px, Y: 1334.50 px. When it should be X: 1809.50 px, Y: 1332.50. Each figure is out by 2. I always have to check the original picture size, manual work out the centre (i.e. divide by 2) and adjust the figures in PS. In this case both figures are wrong, sometimes it is just one that is wrong, sometimes they are both right. But when it is wrong is it always out by 2. It's bizarre. I used to think it only happened with odd numbers but I've seen it happen with even numbers too. I don't expect a reply or a fix - just letting you know. As a software developer myself I'm sure there is just some stupid bug where in some circumstance is does X+=2 or something ;)
