GPS location changes after editing in camera raw

When editing an image (dng) with GPS data in Camera Raw, the location is changed (and becomes incorrect).

Example: original DNG image has the latitude as 52 deg 9' 1.67" N, after editing the image and saving it again, the latitude has become 52 deg 13' 38.00" N. (the longitude is similarly botched)

Analysing the data from which the GPS location is derived (using exiftool), I see that the original has its latitude stored as the three rationals  52/1 9/1 167/100. The edited file, however has garbled the last one and now reads 52/1 9/1 278/1. So there clearly is an error in the code handling GPS location data.

Hopefully this can be fixed quickly!
