Photoshop: Zoomed-out images render poorly in Photoshop CS4 and OS X Lion

Since upgrading to OS X Lion, Photoshop CS4 images have been very rough and poorly rendered when zoomed out. My GPU settings have OpenGL enabled, and the enabled GL settings include Vertical Sync, Forced Bilinear Interpolation, Advanced Drawing and Use for Image Display.

I'm running a MacBook Pro with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB graphics.

Any suggestions are welcome!

In Photoshop's Preferences (Photoshop>Preferences>Performance...), OpenGL Drawing is checked? (if not, make sure it is)

Try setting the (Advanced Settings...) to "Basic" - then quit and restart Photoshop to see if it looks better?
