Thanks for keeping an eye (or two) on it. I have amended that here:

clarified signature: more explicit types;
more robust zoom.factor: work with uninitialized GUI components;

The changeset 29441f2bfe81 was not fully successful in addressing
"uninitialized GUI components".

Even when using static types and immutable values, Scala can crash with NPEs,
because the order of object initialization matters. Accessing values
out-of-order will not work, as we have seen here.

A common workaround is to sprinkle objects with "lazy val ..." declarations,
but that can lead to non-termination instead.

So we need to stay honest and acknowledge that types in Scala/Java are only an
approximative tool to improve software quality.
