Fixed in revision 7958.

Notice that we usually want the cursor to be visible. So a scrolled state in which the cursor is not visible is bound to be quite unstable; many editing actions will cause the scrollbar position to be lost in order to make the cursor visible. In particular, I do not think that it is useful to keep the scroll position while resizing windows. On the other hand when comparing the contents of two buffers, I do see some use for keeping the scrolling position when switching between the two windows. Hence, I fixed this old bug.

Moreover, adjusting the window size readjusts the scroll to a position around the cursor. Both WidKit and Qt.

This is still the case, both under X11 and QT

When switching from buffer 1 to buffer 2, then from buffer 2 to buffer 1, the scrollbar position should remain the same as it was when buffer 1 was left, whereas it moves to where the cursor is.
