Oops.. I hadn't noticed the feature, but that's probably because with
the (unofficial) X cursor theme I'm using, I get a hand cursor instead
of a magnifying glass. I guess it should be fairly obvious to most
users with standard installs. Although I'm not sure that a 'zoom' tool
really equates to 'view at original resolution', I think it's close

Hmm.. I don't know if it could be considered a bug- implementing nice
bicubic interpolation or whatever would be rather slow on older

That would be nice, but I'm probably biased since I work with images
all day long ;)

This is why I think a preference could be introduced.. it's one of
those things that some people love and some people hate. Maybe a Gconf
setting? I dunno. It's certainly useful in some cases (low rez
displays for instance), but it's obstructive in others. If you think a
preference is overkill, I think there needs to be some notification
that the image is being scaled, maybe in the statusbar for example.
