Well, I'm with Cor on this one - I use that a fair bit also and the
finer step is usually what I am looking for.
However as you say there are times it's a real pain and with the slider
it's rather had to get precise control.
Instead of increasing the step amount by five fold I would rather see
the +/- auto-repeat if you hold the mouse button down. Not sure how that
would fair with keyboard bound users though.
