This has pissed me off for some time too. All Apple Mac applications
I know of zoom centred on the current pointer location. Expert users
can use this to zoom+scroll quite naturally, and novice users just
think it's zooming centred on the image but not quite right.
If the mouse isn't in the image window, then doing a normal "zoom
centred" is probably best.
Trying to guess that the selection is up to is a recipe for disaster,
as noted in the many special cases in the bug report.
I can't remember the Mac behaviour on zoom out. I don't suppose it
matters too much there, though.
