A couple of versions of zgv back, I hacked in a directory history, so when you left a directory, it would remember where your cursor was and when you came back, it would move the cursor to the same spot. I then upgraded to zgv 3.0, and found that that feature had been added. Not to be outdone, I then changed the screen re-draw logic so that it doesnt reset the video mode for each picture. This can leave unsightly mess on the screen after the new pallete has been set but before the new picture is finished, but overall it makes for much smoother picture changes (i feel). The mess only occurs in 8-bit modes anyway (now, if I can only get svgalib to work 16,24 bpp with my new VGA card......)
