Do you still have start location issues there? Can you DL the Preview copy and let us all look?
I downloaded and tried the preview and it still had the problem. I have attached it to this message. We can't be sure they don't fix it after creating the preview. But unlikely. So the answer is probably that it is not being fixed and there are thousands of books on Kindle 3 devices that start in the wrong place.
The ONLY time it works is when I fix it with the script from here.
