In Photoshop CS4 the user is able to move the image around, and zoom in and out while using the "Polygonal Lasso tool". This feature continues to work even when a point or more has been selected. This feature is no longer available in CS5. The image now locks into place with limited image scrolling, and zero zoom capabilities. Can this setting be changed in version CS5 to mirror the capability of CS4?

Sounds like you're referring to using the mouse wheel to zoom and pan while using the lasso tool:

Try it in the the Photoshop CS6 beta and let me know if it works as expected:
