[Bug 479489] [NEW] Compiz zoom scary, enabled by default


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Using Ubuntu 9.10, compiz 0.8.4.

What happened: I inadvertently pressed Super+MiddleClick, triggering an
extreme compiz zoom-in. There was no indication of how to zoom out. I
had to log out (i.e. restart X) to make the system usable again (only
later did I discover that Super+ScrollWheel was the right thing). If I
were less familiar with computers, I suspect I would have been quite

What I expected to happen: either (1) Super+MiddleClick and
Super+ScrollWheel disabled by default, and enabled by (e.g.) a
preference pane; (2) some sort of overlay displayed for a few seconds
upon zoom, giving a brief, memorable, and intuitive key combination to
restore any zoomed state to normal immediately; or (3) both.
