I think it's the aGPS rather than the straight GPS (haven't really tested that out yet). It's not a huge problem but does confuse a few people on Latitude when I move around so quickly!
I have that exact problem and its doing my head in!!

At first I thought it was because I didn't have the "use wireless networks" option to detect locations set but then I noticed the map would show Coventry but it would say (in the speech bubble overhead) that I am in Manchester!!

I have to then go in to latitude and select my location then show on map and it updates itself! Its very weird and I only pray that 2.1 fixes it (if it ever gets released)
