I feel terrible about making stupid mistakes like this ... you people are plenty busy and you don't need somebody reporting their own mistakes as bugs, wasting your time. You are not here to correct my idiot mistakes. I apologize profusely. From this point forward, before I report something as a bug I will post in one of the Blender discussion forums to be sure it isn't my own mistake.

Floating point values by nature are imprecise. Blender has to do so much manipulation of values, especially where zoom is concerned, that the tiny amount that values are off as you get closer to bit 0 in a floating point value is going to amplify and amplify. You could move to double precision floats if you're not already using them but that's a major rework. At any rate little can be done about it. IEEE specifications for floating point format inherently allow for the kind of drift being seen. If I knew that was the issue, I would not have submitted this as a bug.

I'll try those changes. But that wasn't the primary issue - the primary issue was object / vertex / line selection.
I am adding something I absolutely should not be adding to a bug report: this entire version 2.8 is AWESOME, it is unbelievable, and the EEVEE engine is a miracle. Why would anybody use anything else????? Okay ... my .blend file was added to the original bug report. I drag/dropped in the wrong place, sorry. Use wireframe mode. There is a lot hidden so use alt+H to unhide it but you shouldn't have to.
The problem is omnipresent and requires no research to reproduce. I could dump a whole bunch of time into uploading a .BLEND file that is too large to upload, and mess around with screen shots, but it won't help. The problem occurs on all files, all the time. Click anyplace that is "busy" - not someplace with a single vertex off by itself. This is why I didn't get more specific: the problem is so obvious and so widespread, just get on a 3840 x 2160 monitor, set your user preferences to display scale 1.25, load any Blender file in the universe, and start clicking where a lot of vertices are relatively close together.

KILL THIS - NOT A BUG. Object was inadvertently caught up in a parent relationship (the camera). Problem solved when this was cleared. Pilot error. Stupid user. Not a bug. Many apologies!!!
