Summary0000455: dot sometimes misplaces edge labels

Edge labels occasionally get placed a fair distance from the edges they belong to. The problem seems to have a higher probability of occurence if the graph is more dense. It seems that usually the label is translated in only the X or Y directory, not both.

In the given example, all the labels except "bad" seem to get placed correctly. "bad" gets placed much too high and on top of node Q.
Steps To Reproduce

digraph "badlabel" {
    node [shape = circle];
    rankdir = LR;
    P; Q; R;
    P -> Q [label = "ok"];
    Q -> P [label = "ok"];
    P -> R [label = "bad"];
    Q -> Q [label = "ok"];
    Q -> R [label = "ok"];
Additional Information
With most graphs that have this problem (including the example given), graphviz 1.5 will render them correctly. I have several other example graphs that cause this same behavior. Email me if you are interested in them.
