I'm having a very strange problem with Illustrator CS5. When I'm doing non-destructive actions, such as eye-dropper or selecting and dragging, the points in my compound object are shifting around.

enter image description here

The only thing that I did between those two halves of the picture was an eye-dropper tool. What on earth is happening?

Select the objects, then uncheck "Align to Pixel Grid" on the Transform Panel.

If you don't see "Align to Pixel Grid" on the Transform Panel, click the Transform Panel Menu and choose Show Options.
