Unpinned labels jump to wrong place when moved

When moving an unpinned label (using auxiliary field labeling), the label jumps to a place too low on the map canvas. It does not follow the cursor location or selection box. See the attached screencast for an example: I move the first label downward and it jumps too far down; I move the second slightly upward, but it also moves down.

This issue does not occur with labels that are already pinned, or with unpinned labels using data-defined labeling.
