bugs in the DirectX coordinate system ??

I'm trying to write a program that shows simply a single picture as a
double picture by using DX7 and a driver for shutter glasses (ELSA
Revelator 3D). To make it possible to change the horizontal shift
between the two pictures I changed the z-coordinate of the texture
that contains the picture. When changing the z-coordinate (between 0
and 1) it would be logical if the shift between the shown two pictures
would increase linear. But when first increasing the z-coordinate in
runtime and then decreasing the shift between the shown pictures is
zero while the z-coordinate is not zero. While decreasing the
z-coordinate of the texture the shift between the shown pictures
becomes shorter in bigger steps than while increasing the
z-coordinate.
Could it be possible that a matrix is changing ?
How can I manage it that changing the z-coordinate brings a
standardized change of the shift between the double pictures ?

Thanks a lot for any help !
