Description posfan12 2011-01-29 10:37:05 UTC
The page zoom slider in the bottom right corner of the window interferes with
horizontal page scrolling. If you release the mouse after scrolling a page
horizontally, and the mouse happens to be hovering over the page zoom slider,
then the zoom slider is *also* activated.

This means that the page will suddenly zoom in or out (sometimes by a great
deal) for no apparent reason. Very annoying.

@OS: the zoom slider should not react to the event sequence "mouse move" +
"mouse release" without having a mouse click before this sequence.

- click and hold mouse button on an empty area of the status bar
- drag over the zoom slider
-> the zoom slider handle will move with the mouse though the event sequence has
not been started (by a click) in the slider.

Always reproducible with AOO 4.1.1.
Because the issue was introduced with the zoom slider it is a REGRESSION.

If one moves the scroll slider (or any sliders?) the mouse should glue at the slider so no other area will be touched releasing the mouse button.
