      I observe a similar problem in TREELIST mode with version 142. When I
      use, for example, 'p'
      to preview a file, the cursor jumps in the list window to the first
      level directory that
      contains the file that I preview. As a quick fix, I added
      NetrwRestorePosn() to
      NetrwBrowseChgDir() (see diff below). I haven't checked if it has
      side effect. I also
      haven't tried 143d.
