Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3.
Problem: Spot removal tool clones from center of image when pasting settings during auto-sync inside develop module.

Problem replication: I'm using spot removal tool on image #1. There are about 15 spots or so, mostly cloned from nearby pixels. Then press "Copy..." and select only "Spot removal". Then I select images #2,#3,#4 and so on, make sure auto-sync is on and press paste to apply the spot removal to them all at once.
Lightroom then applies the spot removal but on some images it clones some of the spots from dead-center of the image.

Selecting the images one by one and pasting the same settings does not replicate the problem.

Yes, I'm having the same problem, even when I cut and past one by one. I am doing a time-lapse, so I am trying to do this to 1,000 images! Very frustrating.
