Staccato dot in A

No dot in FE (→GEEE)

FE (→GE,EE) overlooked the staccato dot for the D1-D octave in the L.H. The engraver's oversight was certainly caused by the unclear notation of A, in which Chopin introduced some of the dots in a very delicate manner and at the same time not directly under the note (moved to the left or to the right) and additionally merging with the pedalling signs.
