Photoshop CS5: Image doesn't center perfectly in fullscreen mode...

Image doesn't center perfectly in fullscreen mode. There is a 1 pixel gap on the left side of the screen because the image is off center by 1 pixel. I'm on Photoshop CS5.1.

Example...
I'm working on a 1920x1200 monitor with an image of the same size. But when I do "fit on screen" [CTRL+0] to center the image on screen then zoom in to 100% size [CTRL+1], there is a 1 pixel gap on the left side of the screen because the image is off center by 1 pixel.

Also, even if I try to fix it by manually repositioning the canvas, this happens again when I press TAB to show/hide the interface in fullscreen mode.

Can this be fixed in the next version of Photoshop?

how to see this bug...

- go to photoshop preferences to set fullscreen background color to magenta [to see this bug more obviously]



- make a new document that is the exact size of your screen resolution

- go into fullscreen mode and press TAB to toggle interface

- press CTRL+0 , then press CTRL+1

- you can see 1 pixel line of the magenta background on the right side of the screen. THIS IS THE BUG: the document is not being centered correctly.

- even if you use the hand tool to manually reposition the document to be center, it gets moved off center again when you press TAB to toggle interface

Does this also happen if you turn off GPU drawing and restart Photoshop?

Which OS version?
Which GPU?

yes, still happens if i turn off GPU drawing and restart Photoshop

Windows 7 x64
GeFoce GTX 660 Ti
[also happened when I was using GTX 460, so doesn't seem related to GPU]
