The LaTeX document below compiles correctly as a pdf, but when using
preview-latex, the image next to Preview 4 is blank.  Then $f(4)$
appears next to Preview 5, and $f(5)$ appears next to Preview 6.
In general, all preview images after the first page break are
misplaced in the document.

This bug appears only when the tikz package is loaded, and affects
anything after the first new paragraph after the start of a new page.
This bug occurs if the page break would have been inserted automatically
(which I induced with the \vspace{10in} line), or by a \newpage.

Commenting out the usepackage{tikz} statement removes the bug.
Removing the extra line between Preview 3 and Preview 4 removes the bug.
