This can lead to confusing outcomes where the user loads the Zulip mobile or web/desktop apps and finds that they are loaded to a time substantially in the past (because they are being loaded to the last point they read in the "home" view).

If they ever hit unnarrowed, they wouldn't have this problem, because the frontend would automatically advance their pointer, but we should move that logic to the backend so that the pointer will advance regardless.

(Still won't be a complete solution, but it'd be an important step forward).
