    Yesterday, I was doing something like saving a file (CMD+S) or some other similar keyboard combination on Lion (10.7.2), when all of a sudden, my screen magnified to a ridiculous amount.

    Then I had to move the cursor around the screen which essentially became a viewport onto the entire desktop.

    I had to reboot the machine for the resolution to return to normal.

    I have Zoom OFF in Universal Access so I'm not sure exactly what I did to make this happen.

    I noticed that when I tried to change desktops (spaces) some of the graphics were messed up looking like a bug.

    Does anyone know how this magnify gets triggered and if this is a bug?

    I haven't been able to reproduce it since.

    Even with ZOOM=off, screen magnification can be triggered by CTRL+ScrollWheel/TouchpadScroll.

    Yes, that must be what happened.

    Thanks very much! :)
