If you havn't already, I'd start looking at:
1) Orthogonality, since this is a one-time fix
2) Flexure - this plagues many owners of high-end mounts
3) Alignment - be sure that the "mount" is aligned, no matter what
the scope is telling you.

I suggest turning off TPoint pointing correction until you get these
3 resolved.
Dave: the whole point of using TPoint is that it fixes repeatable error.
It will guide you in getting polar aligned, and will compensate for non-orthogonality, etc.
There is no reason to "turn it off".
