Interesting PW bug, everything centered
Not sure if it's in the book's formatting or the PW software, but I encountered an interesting bug. Was reading along and looked away for a moment. While looking away my thumb brushed the upper left corner of the screen and out of the corner of my eye I saw the screen redraw. When I looked down all of the text was centered, though it was still on the same "page". Figuring that it'd go away when I hit the next formatting command I continued to read and well into the next two chapters I decided that it was really hard to read centered text and decided to do something about it. I tried changing font size, margins, line spacing, etc... I tried rebooting... setting a bookmark and then jumping around the book (it would draw correctly if I went back a few chapters, but back to centered when I jumped back), etc... I then jumped back a few chapters and manually paged forward one screen at a time and it's then displayed everything correctly and continues to do so. I can't reproduce it... strange.
I e-mailed kindle-feedback, but got back a fairly generic response saying that they're sorry it works that way, call them for help. Hopefully somebody will look closer to see that I was reporting a bug (along w/ book title & approximate location), notice that I'm no longer having trouble, and actually look into it.
Anybody else seen this happen?

I've seen a similar bug in some Calibre-converted periodicals -- but there's no way this could be a Calibre bug, this is a mobi-reader bug. What I see is that I go forward a page past a multi-page menu for a periodical section with a lot of articles, then go back a page, and just someimtes what I see is a mangled mess because the mobi reader has forgotten to render any of the linefeeds. Going back another page fixes it.
Distinctly strange, and not something I ever saw on the K4...
