MATLAB: Does Alt-Click fail to zoom on a figure in MATLAB 7.0 (R14) on Linux or Mac machines

alt+clickMATLABoutzooming

I use the following code to plot a figure and enable zooming:
plot(1:10);
zoom on
Clicking on the resulting figure zooms in on it. On Windows machines, if I then Alt-Click on the figure, the figure is zoomed out. However, this is not true on Linux and Mac machines.
On Linux machines, Alt-Click causes no effect. On Mac machines, Alt-Click brings up a context menu.

    There is a bug in MATLAB 7.0 (R14) in the way that Alt-Click is handled differently on different platforms when zooming is enabled.
    There are no workarounds.
