Bookmark shows as zero percent through chapter after closing and reopening book

Bug: When a book is closed and reopened, bookmarks are shown with 0% into chapter. Also, the bookmarks and annotations are listed under the current chapter instead of the chapter they are actually in.

Reproducible: Yes

New: I think the bug was present in previous firmware, but the exact symptoms might have changed

Kepub or epub: epub that is in the main memory.

For those who want the details...

For an epub, the annotations are stored in a file and in the database. The file overrides the database, so if the database entries are removed or changed, the file will be read when the book is opened. This updates the database and it is done incorrectly. If the file is removed before reopening the book, the bookmarks and annotations are displayed correctly.

Books on the SD card are not affected because the file is not created anywhere.
