I am not sure that I understand the point about the focus behavior. The
shortcut keys will only be received by the window that has the current
focus. What I was suggesting is that the GIMP checks explicitely if the
coordinates of the mouse pointer are within the image window. If it is
in the image window (regardless of the focus model), then the GIMP would
zoom towards that point. If not, then the current zoom behavior would be
