I would try possibly three things:
1. Quiting Safri and restarsting it. Then see if the problem persists.
2. Going into system Prefrences and turning off the double tap smart zoom feature and the then turning it back on. Then see if the problem persists.
3. Restarting your mac.
Hope these work!

Go into system Preferences and turn off the double tap smart zoom and leave it off as it is seems very sensitive and can easily happen. If you need to zoom just use the keyboard shortcuts cmd and + sign or cmd and - sign

I'm somewhat disappointed by this because I like the feature in principle, but when I try to use it it won't do anything. Very frustrating and strange.
Maybe I need to give the Magic Trackpad a try. It seems like Apple is really pushing stufff that only really works on trackpads nowadays, but at the time I got my iMac a bit over six months ago, the Magic Mouse gesture support seemed to work just as well. With the new gestures I think the trackpad might really be the way to go.

Take a look at this little app which allows you to assign for more to a mouse or trackpad than Apple has allowed and it is free. If you are doing graphic or precision work like me then a trackpad is a no no.

Somthing you may want to try when this happens again (and it will happen) is to go to the Safari/View and click on the Actual Size option.
If that does not work, hover (do not click) your mouse in the upper right hand corner of the screen and small blue box with two pointers will appear. Then mouse and click on the blue box. This will shrink the screen and you may then be able to use the Cmd-0 or View/Actual size

Glad the View Actual Size tip helped. I was very frustrated with the new Safari until I just stumbled on the the option under the View menu. I am now a Command Zero junkie. HiHi
Don't forget about the blue thingy in the upper right when you are in full view.

Just as a quick follow-up, do you have any idea what gesture we are actually making when we do this by accident?
Sometimes I would actually like to do it deliberately, so I can see the page more easily, and I can never get it to happen when I do want it ...
