I don't know if it's just me.

1) I zoom-in into a document
2) I press the spacebar, then click-drag to navigate through my document
3) I let go of the mouse, and my document keeps scrolling in the direction that I've dragged.

Any clues on what's causing this random movement? My mouse is on a typical mouse pad--no glass, no reflective surfaces.

My mouse settings are:
Tracking: Middle
Scrolling: Fast
Double-Click: Fast
Secondart click: Right
Scroll: with momentum
Screen Zoom: Checked
Swipt Left/Right to Navigate: Checked

Thanks in advance.

Does it keep scrolling indefinitely? What app is this in? Does the cursor move or is it just the document scrolling?

If it were a bug with the mouse tracking I'd expect to see the cursor keep moving down the screen but it sounds more like a bug (or a feature?) with the app.

Look, no hands!

A similar thing happens to me: the magic mouse will scroll down when I am not even touching it! This happens in every application I have tried it in (PathFinder, Safari, Mail.app, etc.) and navigating in google maps is a nightmare (random zooming). Does anyone else have this problem, and are there any known fixes?
