Grad filter loses alignment when dragged across image when using 'hand' icon. The alignment issue appears to increase if the 'hand' icon is grabbed off-center in the image. The alignment error appears to be in a small arc with the centre off the side moving according to where the handle is grabbed. I.e.; if the handle is grabbed in the center(ish) the misalignment is small, increasing as the grabbed position moves towards an edge of the image. The issue is inconsistent but repeatable.

The engineering team has let us know that this behavior is expected whenever a there is an interaction between warps (including lens profiles, manual distortion, Horizontal/Vertical sliders in the Transform panel, etc.) and local corrections.  Lightroom will always attempt to make a best fit on those local corrections but cannot make a perfect application on warped images.
