Thanks for checking, Kornel. I see that I misread Daniel's message. I
thought he was talking about the LaTeX source preview box. I now see the
same behavior with the LaTeX Log as you and Daniel, that it scrolls to
the top. My guess as to why it happens is that we are taking into
account the possibility that the .log file has changed and so we reload
it. I haven't looked in the code to confirm this guess. If that is
indeed the case, then we would need a better mechanism to see if the log
file has changed.
