Summary0009527: simply selecting guide can move it (a problem if for example working w/ align&distribute dialog)
Descriptionif you click on a guide without being exactly on it, the guide will be moved by a few points.

this problem is only really annoying when selecting a guide for the align and distribute dialog.

i can reproduce it in 1.3.8 and 1.5.

still persists on OSX 10.10.5 1.5.3svn r21353

It might be enough to provide visual feedback, i.e. change the cursor from double-arrow to hand to indicate it's exactly on the guide and that clicking on it will not move but select it.
