Not sure that this is the reason, but it could be (4 km is small enough margin that it could be accounted for by curvature).

These close re-measures are always fun! And we think you're right! 1073 km to Malta, but 1071 km to Italy. We've lodged that update, and if Dan's microscope agrees with our one, expect to see an update :)

Shouldn't UK be included due to Akrotiri and Dhekelia on Cyprus? At the very least add a bumper at the top saying overseas territorys are forbidden.
