A user reported 2 issues recently. The first one is that pivot tool moved the rotated or scaled object to the wrong position and the second one is about 3D cursor being snapped to a nearby vertex while moving it. So they've been dealt with in 2.6.24
• Fix : Wrong pivot position after applying pivot tool to the rotated or scaled UModeler object.
• Enhancement : Allowed 3D Cursor to be snapped to a nearby vertex only if holding CTRL.
