Weird, temporary, display bug

I turned a page and all the text was center justified! When I flipped back to the previous page and then back to the next page again, it redrew correctly, left justified (so it wasn't a problem with the ebook itself).

Odd.

It was probably a bug related to how Mobipocket works. Something in the file probably didn't get read correctly the first time. As a test, take an ebook with lots of formatting, jump to the end of the book, then start paging backwards. In some cases you will get a jumbled mess. Mobipocket ebooks are only decoded a small chunk at a time and need to be read front-to-back. Another legacy from the restrictions imposed by the Palm platform.
