154 - Quest icon locations wrong, and change when left-clicking map

The icon locations of quests on the main map are often completely wrong, and magically change position simply by left-clicking somewhere on the map (yes really!).  After left-clicking, the icons are in the correct spots/locations.

See the two screenshots I've uploaded.  The different between the 1st and 2nd screenshot is literally that I've left-clicked somewhere randomly on the map -- nothing else was done.

How I reproduce the problem:

1. Get some quests in Dragonblight (or possibly somewhere else, not sure of the scope/scale of impact)
2. Press "M" to view the map
3. I happened to be in Dalaran at the time, so I right-clicked twice (once to zoom out of Dalaran, and again to zoom out of Crystalsong Forest)
4. Left-clicked on the Dragonblight region
5. Took 1st screenshot
6. Left-clicked a random location on the map
7. Took 2nd screenshot

I can reproduce this problem 100% reliably.  It may only happen in Northrend, I'm not sure.  Disabling Mapster fixes/addresses the problem.  I do not have any quest-tracking addons or other addons which should conflict with Mapster, but here's the list I'm using right now:

- Ackis Recipe List
- Annoying Chat Fade
- Auctionator
- Fishing Buddy
- MicroDeclineDuel

    I've noticed a similar thing happening with the placement of "digsites", but only since the latest version (1.5.3) was released. I've found that selecting and then de-selecting the "Hide Quest Panels" option on the bottom of the frame will "re-align" the digsites with their correct location. Unfortunately that only works if you actually have quests in the zone, otherwise the only way to find out where digsites actually are is to zoom out the map to the continent level to give you a better idea of where to go and then turn on the minimap digsites tracking.

    Sorry, forgot to mention the most important thing (derp on my part): this is with Mapster 1.5.3.
