Seems like if I am EXTREMELY careful to not brush the surface of the mouse as well as when I draw the line and do not have to move beyond the currently displayed area, I can get it to work ok. But it's challenging, esp for complex routes.

This should be improved now. The map will still zoom with swipes (desired behavior for a number of users with scroll wheels), but it should only change a single level per swipe, not zooming all the way in or all the way out.
Yes, much improved, still zooms but much more controllable and the zooming is not as far in or out.
I wish Caltopo (with an Apple mouse) worked like Google Maps - in Google Maps only up/down swipes cause zooms and not side to side. In Caltopo any directional swipe causes zoom which I think exacerbates the zoom problem.

For me, horizontal directional swipes cause zooming in/out when not drawing (ie when Google is handling the event). On maps.google.com, horizontal swipes have no effect - no idea where the difference is, since I'm using the Google Maps viewer and I can't find anything in the Maps API about ignoring horizontal swipes.
