Gimp renders the document at a given scale, and does not re-render it at any time -- it's not a vector-based viewer but an pixel-based image editor.
GIMPs failure to display the image smoothly is because it takes a shortcut when zooming out of an image, it just uses one of the values from one of the image pixels occupying a single display pixel instead of averaging all that are contributing. This has been done for speed/ease of implementation, at some point in the future this will change. /Øyvind K. -- «The future is already here.
