I feel that this may be behaviour which occurred since the 15th although I
am not //entirely// sure. I certainly noticed it on/after the 15th as an
issue and I attributed it initially to the change in domains. I will keep an
eye on it and keep you up to date. My watchlist would probably be too
unwieldy to be serviceable (I only keep articles which are //particularly//
contentious in there), and I certainly prefer the already visited highlight
flick through method.
