ie7 zoom bug

I've been doing some development with internet explorer 7 and it has been anything but pleasurable. The latest little gotcha has been with the zoom feature. When you zoom in or out links get all messed up. The mouse over on links gets offset by the zoom so that you must click in a different location than the actual link in order to follow it.

This is causing some big problems for my current project.

It's easy to reproduce, just go to google and set the zoom to 50%. Hover over the links above the search box and you will see how the links are offset.

I've always been an ms fan. They are so far off with ie7 though . . .
