The correct way to move is to measure from the front edge of the base before moving and after measuring six inches, the front of the base should be six inches from where it started.
I think that eg number two most accurately represents this.
Example one is moving one inch too far and example three is moving one inch too short.
NB: You can measure from the back edge of the base as long as that you place the back edge of the base six inches from its original position.
It's worth a krak!
Yup, the second one. Either the back to back or front to front.

Movement distance is handled in the same way in all GW games. That is that if you start the measure at the front of the base then you move the model so that the front of the base is X inches away from its original position (where X is however far the unit in question can move). The back of the base is also X inches from its original position.
Like Plasma Catcher and Master Lucius said, this is best represented by your second diagram.
