report on behalf of the Swift XRT team:

We have found an error in the processing that produced the refined Swift 
XRT position reported in GCN 3045.  We have now corrected that error and 
have a new, corrected position for the X-ray afterglow of GRB 050219b:


RA(J2000) = 05:25:16.31
Dec(J2000) = -57:45:27.31

The estimated uncertainty in this position is 6.3 arcseconds.

Please refer to this GCN instead of GCN 3045.
