    Sounds like something could be loose.

    no, it is not normal. has this shifting been checked with some sort of measuring tool to verify that the blade alignment isn't shifting a few thousandths? hard to see with the naked eye. i'd get a $10 dial gauge at HF, attach it to my miter gauge and determine if the alignment to the miter slot is shifting also.
