It's only the first instance that remembers files. Further instances are
prevented from using the feature to prevent clashes.

If you do want to stop it, just open Global Choices -> Edit section
and untick the option 'By default, remember files when quitting'.

How does this work exactly? Is it really the point of last edit or is it
where the cursor is when the file is closed?

Also, is there a limit on how many files it remembers, or a time limit?
What happens if you open multiple views on the same text?

I've had a quick stab at modifying the file history so that it remembers
the cursor position. If you now open a file via iconbar menu -> History,
it opens the file with the cursor in the same place as before.

It seems to work fine (once I had realised that remembering the actual
address is a stupid idea, you need to remember the cursor position as
an offset from start of file). Would this be of use to you?
