Hi Jesse,

Take a look at the Cluster strategy "cluster" method, which is called on 
map "moveend" but executed only if the event has "zoomChanged" property 
set, thus on zoom change :

On line 172, all current features are removed and replaced by new 
features. Event though a feature at a specific position has the exact 
same properties and fid before and after zooming, they are not the same 
feature object. In your demo, see the feature id in the popup, close the 
popup, zoom, open popup on the same "feature location" -> the id is not 
the same.

One quick way to solve your issue would be to close the popup before 
zooming, otherwise you may want to keep track of the cluster "fid"s 
properties selected before zoom and use them to detect which feature has 
them after zoom to re-select it.
