PS CS6 records brushstrokes - but it's not bug free

I heard yesterday that Photoshop CS6 records brushstrokes in actions, and I nearly fell out of my chair. I thought passing on the news might be beneficial for someone, since it's quite a powerful feature.

In order to allow brushstroke recording, you need to enable "Allow Tool Recording" in the Actions tab options pullout. There's a neat video showing the process here:

Now for the bad news ... It appears that the clone tool has a nasty offset bug when replaying cloned brushstrokes from sources. I've whipped up a crappy, but illustrative image below to show the issue more clearly.

I'm running a fully patched up version of CS6 Extended, tried a trial on another machine, same issue. Can anyone verify this?

Yes you are right. I played with it after reading your post and it makes no difference if you untick Aligned Sample or use any of the Modes. It's still a good find, thanks for sharing.
I like to learn.
