Hi and thanks for the feedback

That is correct, currently the Ctrl + Scroll in/out for keyboard command
for zooming is hard coded. I think it makes sense to be able to
customize that however, and if everyone agrees that all that is missing
is someone to implement it.

What you describe sounds like a bug, if you zoom in/out you GIMP is
supposed to not move the pixel under the cursor in most cases. One
exception is for example when the image becomes small enough to fit in
the viewport; then the image is centered.

Smooth scrolling is technically possible, especially since GIMP started
to use a mip-map for the projection. It shouldn't be very hard to enable
smooth scrolling when scrolling with the mouse wheel somehow, but again,
someone needs to write the code.

Again, it sounds like you describe a buggy behaviour. Note that you can
pan around by holding Space or the Middle Mouse Button, and then move
the mouse.
