Comet position wrong

Hello,
Currently, the 156P/Russell-LINEAR comet is passing by M33/Triangulum.

KStars doesn't show its position correctly - it's far off.
On official release of SM 1.5.5 on RPI4.
Also on a more recent KStars client for Windows.

Relevant data file is updated.
Time/location correct.

I used Stellarium to locate it and then centered a nearby star in KStars/EKOS.
Shooting it right now (of course, after 5 frames it clouded up... : (
It will be there tomorrow too.

Back in July 2020, NEOWISE position was correct, as far as I remember.

Just reporting...

Comet 7p/pons-winnecke  is also in the wrong position, out by around 30 deg.  Did same as previous poster. Located in Stellarium, cross checked with SkySafari.  Checked my location time settings OK by locating a known star. Also updated comet settings in Indi. Still wrong.  Max D
