Using 0.39 stock.
I noticed that if I show grid and scroll up through grid spacings, the grid
will sometimes visually jump to a smaller size. Same thing with increasing
the zoom. likewise with decreasing the spacing and zooming in but the grid
spacing will jump to a larger size.
I was trying to come up with a repearable process for displaying this, but
it seems that paper size, zoom level and grid spacing are all dependent on
each other to reproduce it.
Check out this image and the difference between a grid spacing of 5 and 6
Is there a relationship between the grid display and the zoom level?
Shouldn't the grid be set in relation to the document/paper?

Basically what happens is that the grid tries to make sure it doesn't
get too dense. So, as you zoom out it has a tolerance where it jumps
up, spacing the grid out further. This is done so that the picture
doesn't turn entirely blue (or what ever your grid color is) when you
zoom out. Yeah, it sometimes seems to behave kinda randomly. In CVS it
is more adjustable as the first time that this occurs, it removes the
minor grid lines and leaves the major ones. This also means that it is
more configurable as you can set the spacing for the major gridlines.
