That would be perfect. 
Unless a new option to resume on the last slide viewed is added (that would be
an interesting new feature but should be optional) then it doesn't make sense
to show the thumbnail of the last viewed slide.

Agreed for non-ODF formats. It is an enhancement request for those. But for ODP
(and ODG from your comments) is was a regression since in branch 4.2 the
thumbnail was the first slide (as expected) and in 4.3 the thumbnail changed to
the last viewed slide.

Yes, that is the ideal solution.
I still don't see the point of having a thumbnail of the last page viewed if
the document does not open on that page (for long ODT text documents where that
might be useful, the thumbnail IS the first page...)
There seems to be some inconsistency in the thumbnail creation logic.
