Lightroom 3.6: Develop: Space-Key doesn't work correctly while White-Balance Selector active

Lightroom 3.6 32 Bit on Windows XP.

While the white balance selector is active, I would expect that holding down the space key switches to the hand- or zoom-cursor to be able to drag the picture around or zoom in/out. This works for all the other similar tools for which the mouse cursor changes, i.e. tone curve, HSL (their targeted adjustment tools) and all local correction tools (except the crop tool of course, where the picture is always completely zoomed out, so it would make no sense there).

Instead, when the WB selector is active, holding down the space key just temporarily zooms in or out, depending on the current zoom factor. Klicking or dragging while holding the space key down unexpectedly changes the white balance and has no other effect.

I consider this a bug because it a) contradicts all the other tools and b) it does not really make sense to restrict the space key to zooming for the WB selector - on the contrary.

I can still see the same behavior in LR4 beta.
And this would be nice to have and especially: it would be consistent.

Still the case in LR4 final.
