Maybe it's useful to have a topic dedicated to minor bugs.

I've encountered a few, all of them have to do with scrolling (the mouse wheel).

-When in a solar system (sector), and looking at the online scores for some map, scrolling through the list of scores also scrolls the solar system.

-When zooming in during a game, the screen centers at the mouse pointer. This might be intended, but it leads to strange centering when you zoom in multiple times in a row (which happens often when scrolling with a mouse wheel), because then the map centers multiple times at your pointer. This is strange, try it out yourself if you don't understand what I mean. I think it's better to zoom in such a way that your mouse keep pointing to the same point on the map.

-When in the "Keys"-tab of the menu during a game, I'd like to be able to scroll through the menu with my mouse wheel (instead of scrolling the map).

Maybe the last two are feature request instead of bugs, but the difference is a bit fuzzy. I just wanted to state them, and hopefully Virgil considers implementing/fixing them (no matter if that means they will be implemented/fixed or rejected).

This I can confirm is by design.  It is actually quite handy, once you get used to it to quickly move around a large map.  Zoom out, place your cursor where you want to go and zoom in. :)

True, but if you zoom in more than once, you will not end up where you want to go, currently. I probably explained it badly, but I hope that what I mean is clear...
