If I scroll through a document with the trackpad, and then, while the scroll is still in motion, use Command S to save the file, I will cause the document viewer to zoom, unintentionally. This does not occur in Microsoft Word (Command S appears to cause the scrolling motion to stall, momentarily). It would be great to see a similar feature added to LibreOffice, as well!
Semms the description has nothing to do with the comonent Base. Will change the component to "Writer".

CONFIRMED with 188.8.131.52 + Ubuntu 14.04
The behavior seen is the result of combining CTRL + Scroll-up/down with the trackpad (or mouse wheel). Unclear if this is a bug.

Perhaps Word interprets the priority of the CTRL key bindings in a different order, so that combining CTRL+S gets a much higher priority than combining CTRL + mouse-scroll.

I don't expect most people to try to save a document while simultaneously scrolling, however if adding this feature doesn't slow down other key combinations, then I don't see any reason to prevent its implementation.
Status -> NEW
Importance -> low
OS -> All
This has happened to me several times with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, and it is very annoying.
It is annoying because I would sometimes find the document zooming in very far to an unusable state (e.g. 200%), and I had no idea why this was happening until searching Bugzilla. I only knew it happened occasionally when saving, but I never knew it was because I had triggered scrolling prior to saving.
I think the "Importance" should be raised higher than "Low" because it is not necessarily obvious to the user why the screen is randomly zooming in, and it negatively affects usability.
Also, on Mac OS X, scrolling of the document can continue for a second or two after swiping the track pad (i.e. scroll "with inertia," which is enabled by default in System Preferences under "Accessibility" > "Mouse & Trackpad" > "Trackpad Options..."), so this issue can occur quite frequently. In other words, you don't need to be saving simultaneously while swiping the track pad.
One more point as to why this is annoying:
There doesn't seem to be a way to "undo" and return to the user's previous zoom setting. For example, the user might have forgotten if they were configured to "Page Width", "Optimal View", "100%", etc, and so will have to experiment with different zoom settings to restore to what they think is the previous view setting.
