Pathfinder 8.3.8 has broken desktop drag and drop

Since installing 8.3.8 everything I drag and drop on the desktop is offset from the mouse pointer by what looks like the grid-size of the desktop.

It doesn't happen in dragging and dropping in folders even in icon view.

I've deleted PF8, including all the prefs and other settings files I know about and downloaded the latest copy from the website.

Can I raise a defect report somewhere? Happy to run any diags if requested. I can't find the release notes to see if anything related changed (perhaps I didn't look hard enough?)
