Of course I understand what lines you meant. I said that if your session
lasts some time and you've visited a lot of files in the session, VLP will
occupy several pages. Currently selected link will be the one that corresponds
to documend opened recently - so last link on the VLP will be current (at
least for Tree mode) - this means that VLP will be scrolled to the last page
so you won't see 2 lines you are talking about.

It's easier to fix it than remove this feature. At least this doesn't harm
you I guess - seems you don't use Tree Mode.
Your "who needs it?" could be treated as "everybody thinks it's useless".
If yes then how did you get this info?

Seems that I misunderstood something when posting this note (Seems I was
thinking about special support for VLP page - ie that VLP page is saved on
exit, loaded at startup and that new entries are appended to it). Now I wish
to correct my POV: I haven't saved my VLP (ie didn't use ability to save VLP),
but disabling the ability to save VLP seems useless for me.

Of course anything could be done manually...
