The autoreload feature (ie, when working with latex) does not save the
current page position. When zathura loads the new pdf, it remembers what
page it was on before, but not the position within that page; instead, it
moves the view back to the top of the page.
Steps to reproduce: Create a pdf with latex. Open with zathura and scroll
half way down the first page. Make a change to the latex source code and
recompile the pdf. Zathura detects the change to the pdf and autoreloads,
but resets the view to the top of the first page.
I'm using the (outdated) version of zathura (0.1.1) in the [community]
repository of Arch Linux. Has been fixed in newer versions? I was about to
submit this to the bug tracker but thought I'd check first.
