    After a bit of experimenting, it looks like it's a background app that handles zooming (turned on or off in the System Preferences->Universal Access). It is opened when zoom is turned on, and quit when zoom is turned off.

    thanks, i've been pushing my machine to the limit beta testing a new audio application and was wondering why the GUI was slowing down so soon.

    no idea how it got turned on, but turned it off and all is good. many thanks.
