Actually, I have the opposite problem. I hardly use the mousewheel. I grew
up when mice didn't have wheels but heavily used the middle button. Now I
can't get a proper 3-button mouse anymore, and when I click the middle
button I often get unwanted wheel rotations. Maybe there should be a
variable telling what to do with simultaneous clicks and rotations.
