Position in app list not remembered when navigating back from More Info screen

Bug Description

software-center, Ubuntu 11.10 beta

1. From the home screen, search for "photo".
2. Scroll through the list of apps, click on one, and press More Info, then press the back button.

What you expected to happen: Be returned to the same position in the list I was at before.
What happened instead: I was returned to the top of the list.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#navigation-back-forward>: "Each item in the history should remember its scroll position ... These attributes should persist if you return to the screen using Back/Forward navigation, but not if you navigate to the screen any other way."

See also bug 828887, about the "Installed" screen.

I believe that bug #828913 has a broader description of the problem, and so this should be marked as duplicate of that bug. In that bug report all forward/back actions are reported to exhibit this behaviour.

      with the latest debtags upstream plans

  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/app.py:
    - disable navigating back by pressing the backspace key because it has
      started showing dodgy side effects - use ctrl+[ or alt+LEFT instead

    this only works in the available pane (LP: #852763)
  * correctly theme the channel selector menus (LP: #921477)
  * trigger pot file rebuild
