LIGHTROOM 5.2 Radial adjustment brush doesn't paste in the same location

Once in a while, while copying and pasting radial adjustment brushes (usually along with all other settings), I find that the pasted pins move significantly from the source location. I just saw this happen again with a set of photos fresh from a download on a D800, with no cropping applied to any of the photos.

Using LR 5.2 on OSX Mavericks.

Any lens corrections applied? Were all of the photos shot in the same format with the same lens?

Great questions. No lens corrections applied. However, the collection of images I used had a mix of the Nikon 14-24 and 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses. I'm not 100% positive at this point if I was copying between lenses, that's entirely possible.

I would expect that when a pin is copied, it's location stays in the same relative position within the frame. Since I had the same camera (same sensor aspect ratio) and no crop was applied to either photo, I'd expect this to be in the exact same spot, regardless of lens (or zooming of the lens). Had I cropped the images, I would have expected the same relative positioning (ie, something like 75% across the width and 50% down the height, or something like that). Any other positioning of the pin would seem somewhat arbitrary to me. Do you know what logic is applied to placement of a pasted pin if lenses aren't the same between two images?

I'd still call it a bug if it does differ by lens - just that information might help narrow it down, if that's the factor that changes the location.
