It's an old bug in 1.3cvs ... been there for ages. I had a look for it
at one point but never managed to track it down. All the zoom stuff will
need to be re-done during the ScribusView/PageItem restructuring, but it
wouldn't hurt to have it working before then.

You are using a _developer_ build, after all... sometimes things will be
broken :S
