Well, sorry. I just had a quick look and didn't check carefully the 
values... I saw on the map that it was a the same place, but I didn't 
look with very high zoom :)

But, be careful about google map values, they are not always accurate. 
On some places, when I use a mixed view, roads are off by more than 10m 
than satellite view (in that case, it's the satellite view that's not 
correctly georeferenced)...
