Zoom problem with Mac track pad

This seems like such a simple thing, but I haven't been about to figure out how to fix it.

I'm using a mac laptop with a track pad, every time I scroll with the track pad, or touch it with more than one finger the page size goes haywire. Is there any way to lock the page size? I spend half my time finding my place again when it zooms in or out.

Is this not the on screen zoom, rather than the document Page Size?

 Edit: If so, it is discussed at http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=19730&p=131827&hilit=zoom+trackpad#p131827

Yes, your right its the zoom rather than page size.

When I first used my wife's mac book pro I had the same issue - I discovered that I was inadvertently touching the track pad with two fingers that caused wild zooming rather than move the arrow - two finger touches cause different things to happen and you need to be careful.
