To prove point:
1. crtl + click on a vehicle arrows in its box to follow it
2. zoom out using scroll on mouse - stops following
3. repeat 1.
4. zoom out using top menu buttons - keeps following
5. zoom to any level other than normal (z2 in ez :) )
6. repeat 1. - doesn't work!

very inconsistent don't you think
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  In r20361. Vehicle following while zooming out spends a lot of CPU for redrawing. To be consistent, vehicle following will turn off whenever zoom changes.

I am not sure this is a bug. If the user really wants to zoom out, he can use the '+' button.

I agree with smatz. +/- zoom around the center, while the wheel zooms around the cursor position. So it is different.

but perhaps enable following vehicles on other zoom levels? as you can when you zoom out with buttons?
