The pixel coordinates could vary wildly. I have a large map (9 MB) 
that can usefully be zoomed in some 8 times. If you click lower left 
of the visible portion to set your way point while zoomed in on the 
top left of the map, then move over to the lower right of the map, 
but set the waypoint in the upper right of the zoomed in window, one 
would obtain the most interesting traces.

The bug has been on and off, depending on the last versions (after 
the letter of the version, so it might have been on and  off in 
0.05b2, b3, b4 respectively).. The reference should be to the pixels 
in the map coordinates, not to the screen coordinates.

I think Mick has it quite under control by now.
