There are actually two different issues. The first is that, as Tommy says, going backwards through the book does not precisely reproduce the page breaks of going forwards. The second - more significant - issue, is that using the "goto page x" feature will take you to a different - sometimes quite radically different - page than you'll reach if you simple go through the book a page at a time to get to "page x". Doing a "goto page x" will always take you to the same place (for a given "x"), but if won't be the same page that's numbered "x" by reading the book a page at a time.

These bugs exist in all versions of the MobiPocket Reader. They don't matter if you just want to read a book from start to finish, but they can be significant if you want to jump around in a book. The best thing to do is to use bookmarks - they do work reliably.
