Playback stops when changing timeline zoom level

When zooming in/out - with ctrl+mouse-wheel, slider, keyboard - playback stops.

Is this intended? I am used to other timeline-based editing software (both audio and video), and find it quite useful to be able to zoom in/out while playing to e.g. locate a place where to then place the cursor or to observe the audio.
