Yes, I'm testing against trunk (and also the OL2.8 branch). When I was
doing these tests, the compressed file coming from openlayers/dev/ had a
revision tag of 9309 in it, which is just before the 2.8 RC1 release I
Testing again this morning I found that when the example is served from
my local MS4W Apache, it is working correctly, but served from a local
Oracle Application Server instance the labels are placed incorrectly.
I'll investigate that further.
