    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,, etc.) and navigating in google maps is a nightmare (random zooming). Does anyone else have this problem, and are there any known fixes?
