# [tex-live] chapter* does not set page heading

Hi,

I have noticed one thing which I am not sure if it is a bug or a feature.

This is a small reproducible example:

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\title{Title}
\author{Author}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter*{Preface}

\dots

\newpage

\dots

\end{document}

When I typeset this document, the heading of the last page (belonging to
the Preface' chapter* is set to "CONTENTS". As if chapter* did not
reset the headers/footers properly in the same way as ordinary chapter
command does.

I am curious; is this the desired behavior?

Thanks in advance for any help.
