Right, I somehow missed the part about thumbnails.

I personally don’t see page thumbnails as a useful feature; for me,
pages of text at thumbnail size are not distinctive enough to be able
to choose between them. Therefore, I cannot clearly reason about their
scroll behavior.

However, I believe the threshold where pixel-based scrolling and
glyph-row-based scrolling meet should be when at least two full glyph
rows fit in a window; this way, after the scroll, the previous row is
still visible, providing some continuity.
