Layer Shift Octo Print

Recently completed my 2.5 upgrade and I am running 3.3 firmware.
Experiencing an issue on octo print printing however. Printing gcode from the card works without issue. Printing the same gcode file through octoprint gives me a layer shift about 1/2 through the print. Usually y axis sometimes as much as 2 mm usually just about 1/2 a mm or less.

Thinking it was my belts since I had just rebuilt everything, I went back and adjusted the tension on the axis belts per the guide, but the problem persists only on octoprint. This is running on octo 1.3.9 rc2 on a Rasberry Pi 3 fairly consistently on this model (Slicr sliced generic pla .2 layer heights) but I have also encountered it on other models as well.

I am a long time user of octoprint and never experienced this with any consistency before. Anyone else see this? Again the same gcode works off the card without issue which is what is maddening.
