The address on my ID card is not my current address: Will the TSA care?

I'm leaving for a trip in a few days (a domestic, US flight), and I'm worried that my laziness is going to cause troubles with airport security.

My home address on my current identification card is not the address of my current residence. About a year ago, I moved to an apartment about 5 miles away from the apartment whose address is printed on my current State ID card. Due to a combination of laziness and extreme busy-ness at work, I never got around to updating my card to reflect the change in address.
Being that I have not flown on a commercial airliner since the big liquid explosives scare, I'm not really sure how serious the security screeners are at the airports at the moment. Will someone notice that the address on my ID card does not match the address which I entered when I purchased the ticket and pull me aside for the requisite TSA anal probe ?
(I know this is a stupid question, but since I'll be on vacation for 2 weeks, I figure it wouldn't hurt to blow my AskMe quota at least this one time)
