My first thought was that the feedback paths would be wrong somehow - I always found it really hard to keep track of what was supposed to be inverted or not. But having checked it against my own version of the same thing, there doesn’t seem to be anything fundamental up with it. The schematic is good and should work well enough.

Guy’s idea about the offset current is interesting. Beyond that, I’d be looking for a mistake somewhere.
