Eye of Ender is Wrong?

Hi there, I've been playing the beta for a while now on my multiplayer server with my friends (started on 1.8.1) and I acquired some Eyes of Ender to find a stronghold now that the game has been released and we haven't uncovered one yet. I followed it and dug into the ground, but when I throw another, it simply floats there as if to say "Hey, right here!" I've dug around it, above and below it, and there isn't a hint of a stronghold, and I've wasted some rather precious Eyes of Ender (as farming for blaze rods can be a pain). Is there any way that the eye could be misleading me? If so, can it be fixed?

Thanks so much in advance!

I think in 1.8 there was only 1 stronghold that spawns instead of the 3 that spawn now. If that's the case the eye is using the new 1.9 map seed to find a stronghold that won't be there since that area of the map may have already been generated during 1.8.

Why not post this in the real Minecraft boards? This board is dead.

It's hard to believe that this game died so quickly after Minecraft's official release. It's sad really.

Minor trolling never hurt anyone, right?
