Hey Devin,
I just downloaded the test stack in your bug report and briefly tried it 
in LC 7.1. It seems like scaleFactor is not having that problem in this 
version. I've been using 6.6.5 and haven't noticed anything there either.

For example, when the scaleFactor is anything but 1, setting the loc of a stack is way off. Like setting the loc of a stack to the screenLoc does not place it at the center of the screen.
