    This is a fascinating problem.  Usually, button clicking is one of the most problem free functions of TC.  Full disclosure, I haven't done keyword testing in a long time.  
    In the keyword test I would try using "Click", "ClickButton" and "DoDefaultAction".  They are similar button different.  

    Also, is there a slider control you can use instead to accomplish the zooming?  Some applications have both.  If there is a slider maybe you can accomplish the same thing with it.  Some applications also have keyboard shortcuts for zooming (e.g. <Ctrl> +).  I don't know if that applies to yours.  If it does, that might be another option.

    How does Object Spy identify those controls? Is it a button, link etc?

        Try adding a delay, and see exactly what the automation is doing when playing back.

        Verify your script or keyword test is performing the correct actions

        How are you performing the zoom in/out operation?
