steps to recreate:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. settings: set autosave on at interval of n
2. use scroll wheel to scroll down any amount in a long document without anchoring the cursor in the newly scrolled-down viewing position.
3. autosave does a document save and reverts the view to the cursor position.
I lose my place, particularly when reviewing, editing, or proofreading documents because the cursor position and the view position may be several pages apart.
Leave the view as is on autosave, disregarding the cursor position so that I do not lose my place every n minutes where n=autosave interval.
partial workaround is to either anchor the cursor every time you scroll or maybe use pg up and down instead. Page up and down seem to not be affected, though not sure about that. neither of these is very helpful since for me scrolling is the way I keep my place while proofing documents.

Thanks for the report. This bug has already been fixed, and will be part of 5.2. The fix is not yet ported to 5.1, but I assume it's going to happen soon. See bug 95797.
