Yes, sort of.   Not quite exactly the same circumstances, but I filed
a bug report on something quite similar.  The bug tracker's webpage
seems to be down at the moment, otherwise I'd be able to give you a Bug#
for it.

There are a bunch of inconsistencies in the co-ordate transform code
that show up as single pixel-wide problems at high zooms (or in your
case at low zooms on large images).

I've been meaning to look into it, but haven't found the time :(
