Sorry, I wasn't clear. In the context of the manual entry, it's not
obvious that the program author(s) intended zoom factors of 'page' and
'width' to be subject to incrementing/decrementing.
I get the same impression from looking at the zoom box at the bottom of
the screen: The choices are 400%, 200%, ..., 12.5%, "fit page", and "fit
width". So it seems quite possible that the program is behaving as
designed. There's also no reason to think that this is a bug in the
Cygwin implementation of xpdf, unless the OP finds that it behaves
differently on other systems.
