This is a known problem in the first native version of Mathematica
for the Power Macintosh. What is actually happening is that the
magnification for the notebook in question is being set to a very
large number (about 2300 if memory serves).

This problem has been fixed in the current shipping version of
Mathematica for the Macintosh. If you contact Wolfram Research
Technical Support (support at directly including full
details of your copy of Mathematica they will send you the 
fixed version as a bug fix upgrade.

I hope this helps.
