    A friend of mine has the same issue. It does seem to be a calibration problem however I'm not sure if it can be fixed with homebrew due to the way the firmware is set up (speculation, mind you).

    Anyhow, what helped for my friend, is to "cheat" the calibration. For example, if your touchscreen is off by 2 mm to the right, try calibrating it by pushing the left side of the calibration target. Next, start up pictochat to see if it helped or not.

    When you get on Calibration, watch carefully where your Stylus touches!

    It could be a problem of your screen though, say, you hit it way too hard, or scratch it too much.
