Sometimes when panning with the hand tool, it zooms way out instead of just moving the canvas

So normally when you hold the space key and drag, it just moves the canvas, but every now and then, seemingly randomly, it zooms way out and shows a little box which is the size and shape of the area of canvas I was previously looking at. If I move the box and let go of space, it zooms to that location, but all I wanted was to move normally. I don't think I've ever wanted the zoom out, move, then zoom back in behavior. What causes that? How do I make it stop?

    Thats the behaviour of when you hold down the h key and click the mouse button.

    I wonder if the preference file is corrupted? I tried to make it do the same with the spacebar, but I can not seam to do so. Unless I am missing some trick.

    It's "bird's eye view" and by coincidence, your problem was discussed in another thread last night: Problem with zoom in Photoshop CS6
