Does anyone else have the issue, when you change the basemap using the basemap gallery, the map zooms out to the full extent. 
Testing using the ESRI basemap gallery, if you zoom to Auckland New Zealand and change the basemap you will be pushed to the full extent. 

If you get close to the equator or move into the northern hemisphere it works.  I have noticed it is sporadic and sometimes works
(stays at the correct extent), but most of the time not.  Is there a work around for this issue?  I have tested in IE11 and Chrome.
