[Qgis-developer] No Zoom to selected point

Dear devs,

today I stumbled on a strange behaviour when zoooming to a point.
To reproduce: load a point layer, select one feature in the table and 
click "Zoom to selection". The result is the same as if clicking "Pan 
map to Selection", i.e the map is panned but not zoomed.
I _think_ this is because the bounding box of the selected feature has a 
width and height of 0. Try 
iface.activeLayer().boundingBoxOfSelected().width()/.height() in the 
Python console.
Geometrically speaking this is correct but as the zoom to selected 
function builds on a bounding box with width/height > 0 the outcome for 
the user is bad.
My suggestion would be to define a small rectangle around the bounding 
boxes' center if it has size 0 in the zoomToSelected function.

Tried with QGIS 2.0.1 and current master

Shall I file a ticket for this?
