Well, here's a brute force solution. I've fed my Ansys/ED with your section and it says the shear center is at x=147.5mm, y=182.3mm. It's halfway from centroid to centerline intersection.
I think I'll stick to my guns. First, it isn't my section. In fact I don't know what the section in the first post actually is. Hence the little himily on symmetry.

Second, I've been using ANSYS for 30 years. I've found a few bugs and it sure hasn't kept me from making mistakes but violate first principles? Never.
