When the cursor is moved over a image that has been shrunk to fit the screen a
magnifying glass replaces it, misleading the user into thinking that there is no
right click context menu

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wave cursor over a fit-to-page image
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
See above

Expected Results:  
An icon like the combined cursor/hourglass with the hourglass being replaced
with a magnifying glass.
Just makes navigation clearer
I don't think that its a convention that there must be an arrow to have a
context menu.  Windows Image Viewer and Adobe Acrobat Reader 6 both have similar
icons and there is a context menu there.  I think most users would right-click
without thinking, and it would be the vast minority that would not even try to
right-click on an object they can normally click themselves.  The combined icon
would also be less clear regarding its function, so this could be more
detrimental than the current (and perfectly acceptable in my eyes) alternative.
