Cannot navigate properly with arrow keys. Seems stuck in a way.

This goes directly back to these two previous discussions: 
"Viewer keyboard control issue" by Joscelin: http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=00581351-82d8-438d-a37b-7eadb3fb4991&dis=eca294ce-ae72-47d8-bd24-333fbfc79551

For what it's worth, Joscelin, I tried your photos as a Wall synth and the navigation is what you would expect.

The problem is that the center that your spin rotates around was estimated to be very far away. If you look at the map you can see the arc has a huge radius. For some reason that makes panning extremely slow, not just with arrow keys, also with the mouse. This inconsistent panning speed is an issue in many other synths, too, yours is just an extreme example.
The shoot was intended to be a Spin, with one of the cabins in the center. Yes, it is far away and I agree that this is likely to cause the Synther a problem, assuming an incorrect synth type.

Thanks for trying it as a Wall, Nate. I have not thought of that solution.
Here a new version as a wall with more pics http://photosynth.net/view/a84136a1-d630-414d-a861-a939ea749356
