When I saw your note about the recent change, I tried d.zoom.  Wow!   
Now I don't have to worry about pausing in the middle of zooming  
around when I get distracted by something else.

I used to build the snapshots every week, but these days I just watch  
the changelog, and build a snapshot if I have time.  I haven't seen  
anything about this being fixed either.  The snapshot I just tried is  
2006-4-1.  Mac OS X 10.4.6.

+1 verified it's better now.
