When you start talking about thousandths (.00x) of an inch, and you are as close as you are, I really don't think that would really be a factor in pinching, or alignment. The saw will cut straight enough for any project that you throw at it. IF it was hundreths (.0x) of an inch, then that MIGHT factor into a problem, but I highly doubt it.
We are woodworkers, not machinists. Our tolerances in the pieces we cut do not need to be precise, IMO.
That being said, I think your saw is set up just fine. You might lose your mind trying to get it dialed in perfectly.
I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.
