Photoshop: Rotation tool needs to stop shifting pixels after applying

I am having the exact problem mentioned here:  https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/41588/pixels-shifting-after-applying-transform-in-photoshop

I too am making sprites for a game and it would be so much easier if I could rotate the sprites I've already made.  When I rotate the selection, I get it how I want to look, but then when I apply the rotation, all of the pixels suddenly shift out of position and it looks completely different from before the transform.

I wish that the rotation tool, when set to nearest interpolation, would not shift the pixels after applying the rotation.

Photoshop does not feature a Rotation Tool. 

Anyway I hadn’t noticed the issue previously but my work usually involves photographic images where Nearest Neighbor is not a desirable Image Interpolation method in general. 

Does the shift at committing the transformation also occur when you transform Smart Objects (with Image Interpolation set to Nearest Neighbor)?
