This can hardly be true, since unwanted zooming is very
destructive. My (assumingly carefully designed) workspace is no more.

I assume you have never heard about image being panned by mouse?!

Irfanview is - in many respects - horrible. It won't keep position
when zooming. There is no convenient way to tune brightness/gamma. I
do not see a simple way to make pressing `2' go to 1/2 zoom. Just to
