Menu does not return to selected item

Bug Description

From the main menu, when selecting for instance 'Music', pressing the backspace key to return to the main menu results in the currently selected item defaulting back to 'Video' every time.

Menu needs to remember where it was and return to that position. I'm sure this worked on earlier versions.

I've seen this too. However, I disagree about this working earlier. I don't think that the ScrollMenu widget has ever had the concept of memory. I would think that the ScreenHistory would ensure that position is preserved, but maybe that's not the case.

In line 549 of user_interface, which is part of the handling code for backspace, the update() method of the screen is called.
For this is:

Hence all sense of position is lost.
I'm going to take a look at making this have some "memory"... ;)
