seems one dont even need to right-clic to cause this, several hit on the 
escape key will be enough to have IE go in some infinite loop (I succeded 
having IE use 1.5Gb of memory before killing the process ^_^), probably 
caused by the event listener on the esc key. We will investigate this.

Changing the behaviour of the zoom tool is certainly possible, but i doubt 
we can allocate time for this in the near futur.
