Windows 7: IE 8 - Zoom level not resetting

IE 8 - Zoom level not resetting

On Win 7 x64, IE 8, the "Reset zoom level for new windows and tabs" setting is not being respected.

1. If I go to a page that contains many links (for ease of testing)...
2. Shift-click on a link to open it in a new window
3. Change the zoom level
4. Close that window
5. On that original page of links, shift click a new link to open it in another new window
6. The new window does NOT open at 100%. It opens at whatever I had changed the zoom level to for that first link.

I have tried using IE in Safe Mode, I have tried both the 32 and 64 bit version of IE, none of it works.

Is this happening to anyone else? And does anyone know how to get it to work properly?
