Subject: What is the relationship between "linkaxes" and "xlim mode" ?

Hi matlabers!
I am working with two axes (axes1 and axes2) where I plot matrix with imagesc. The matrix I plot are the same size in both axes (let say size(m)=50 40 )
I have a third axe(axes3) which is always x linked with axes2.
furthermore, I sometimes link x and y on axes1 and axes2.

I have an option in my GUI to make a "zoom box", which consists in chose the limits of the x axis for axes1 and axes2.

Well, when axes1 and axes2 are NOT linked, the zoom box works perfectly (making it, and then utrning it off - by writting set(axes1,'xlim','auto') and same for axes2

BUT when I link them for x and y axis, and them I call the zoom box, it works ok when making it, but when I want to turn it off, the x axis takes bigger limits than the quantity of data, ie instead of showing a nice imagesc for my 50*40 matrix, I get more x values, white! (so I get an imagesc for a 50*50 for example...

There seem to be a fight between link axes and xlim... someone can help me?
thanks a lot in advance
