Although I cannot test, I assume this can be confirmed and called a bug :)

One thing I notice now about this bug is when you do zoom by the '+' button on the Numpad part (right keyboard part) you do get the correct zooming to the mouse location. it only occurs when using the Cmd+Mouse Scroll when it ignores the mouse location.


the issue also occurs on the "Graph Editor" Crtl/CMD + Mouse wheel won't zoom to the mouse location, but '+'/'-' will do so.
I saw the fix occurred but don't know if it for all windows in the app.

thank you,
