Why can't I perfectly align an Inset LocatorPane with its container?

Here's the code:

Module[{w, h, pts, img},
 w = 800; h = 600;
 pts = {{60, 380}};
 img = Graphics[{
    RGBColor[0, 0, 1],
    Table[Rectangle[{x - 1, 0}, {x + 1, 600}], {x, 0, 800, 20}],
    Table[Rectangle[{0, y - 1}, {800, y + 1}], {y, 0, 600, 20}],
    Rectangle[{100, 100}, {200, 200}]
    }, ImageSize -> {w, h}, PlotRange -> {{0, w}, {0, h}},
   PlotRangeClipping -> True];
 Pane[Graphics[{
    RGBColor[0, 0, 0],
    RGBColor[1, 0, 0],
    Table[Rectangle[{x - 1, 0}, {x + 1, 600}], {x, 0, 800, 20}],
    Table[Rectangle[{0, y - 1}, {800, y + 1}], {y, 0, 600, 20}],
    Rectangle[{150, 150}, {250, 250}],
    Opacity[0.5],
    Inset[
     LocatorPane[Dynamic[pts], img, ImageSize -> {w, h},
      LocatorAutoCreate -> True] (*,{397,302} *)]
    }, ImageSize -> {w, h}, PlotRange -> {{0, w}, {0, h}},
   PlotRangeClipping -> True],
  ImageSize -> {800, 600}, ImageSizeAction -> "Scrollable",
  Scrollbars -> Automatic]
 ]

Both the inset and the containing Graphics[] are supposed to be the
same size, yet for some reason the default alignment ("Center") shows
a noticable offset.  If I uncomment the coordinates {392,302} (why I
pretty much had to determine by visual inspection of the
misalignment!) then everything aligns properly, but I'm still missing
one pixel of the inset at the bottom edge, and two at the right edge.

If I use a Pane instead of a LocatorPane, then the centered alignment
is much closer, but it still appears to be off by one.

Unrelated question, why doesn't LocatorPane have all the Options that
Pane does?  Specifically ImageSizeAction and ScrollPosition are
missing.

Thanks,

Michael
