Drew, please try being objective.  You were one of the main pushers
for introducing the breadcrumbs feature, so it's understandable that
you have bias, but please try to hold it back.

Well, perhaps I happen to hit only those ``rare cases'', because it
happens all the time to me.

The amount of offset depends on how many other nodes you visited in
the same sub-file, so it's somewhat unpredictable.

Anyway, Juri is actively working on a solution for this bug, and
almost has it done, so this argument is pointless and unnecessary.
