Well i've recently compiled and tested 2 patches that revealed wrong
and the patche's issues were triggered in simple situations.

The patch leads to erratic zoom changes for low values of zoom.

The patch improves the issue and also improves the UX,
but some issue remain when deleting 2 guides.

These issues are originaly why i wished to remember the students
to this universal cooperating principle : test before submitting.

Sometimes, a good test requires to first
get the head "out of the code can"
so as to get wider and more user-natural approach.

Asking a colleague to test is a good alternative,
because an independent tester might find errors
that the developer never thought about.

and keep up the good work !
