From what I have heard, one should position the spoke magnet as close to the centre of the wheel (near the hub) as possible. Unfortunately, not all computers come with long enough wires. My Sigma BC1600, for example, doesn't allow wiring down the fork that far. As a result, I sometimes notice an 'imbalance' in the wheel.
But it's not something to lose sleep over.
