Ok, together with r20714 (removing unsed variable only) the backwards
scrolling isn't completely fixed  :-( 

The current version is a little bit better because it is possible to
scroll once back, the second click jumps to the beginning of the list in
correct order.

The previous version jumps at the first backwards click to the beginning
of the list, in reversed order.

I think we need a database request to figure out the offset for every
backwards scrolling in dependency of the current page and the limit. But
I do not know how to do this in the cheapest way, without melting the
servers  :-(

What this needs is a "to" parameter, to specify a maximum id.  Pseudo-code would be:

SELECT ... FROM table WHERE id < 1234 ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 50

Then you need to reverse the result set in PHP.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-05-27 00:09:13 UTC
Should be fixed by Aaron in r35371.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-05-27 20:20:18 UTC
r35371 and friends reverted as they don't work on MySQL 4.0.
