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
list a few...

Hope this helps,
