Review zoom problem

Hi folks.
This problem just showed up on my K10D:
When viewing photos on the camera display, when I roll the zoom button to zoom in, it runs away and goes all the way up to "x20" magnification. Is there a setting somewhere I've accidently changed, or is this a (minor) foul-up?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, there's a setting that controls this. I can't recall exactly where it is, but I think it's either a custom function or in the playback menu. The setting deals with the initial zoom level.

Nope; that didn't do it. I can change the initial zoom, but no matter what the initial zoom is set to, it only stays there for about half a second then runs away to x 20 and sticks there. It's starting to get frustrating.
