The Icons for x/y-zoom are really good!

But there is a bug with the exclusivity of the mode buttons: at least data mode and layout mode are exclusive,
but having the three x/y-zoom buttons we don't need a extra data mode button: we switch to data mode for
zooming. Made the changes in svn, if they are OK, I remove the _dataModeAct completely, currently they are only
commented out.
