...this seems to be related to the square root of 2. Apparently, every
other step doubles the magnification, and it so happens that the steps
in between are related by a factor of sqrt(2). I have no idea (and
haven't checked) if this is hard-coded, but it seems too systematic to
be a result of a random (or system dpi dependent) choice.

Hope this clears this up,
