Hi Murray,

This behavior can be mannaged through the option RotationAction.

This is from the documentation

With the default setting RotationAction->"Fit", 3D graphics are
rescaled to fit in their image region at the end of every interactive
rotation action. This will typically make the graphics appear to jump
slightly when the mouse is released.
With RotationAction->"Clip", 3D graphics are not rescaled at the end
of a rotation action, so they may be clipped or leave extra space, but
will not appear to jump.

RotationAction can be set globally in the Preferences dialog.
