Sorry, Drew, I don't believe you ;-)

There's nothing in ChangeLog between last June and today to suggest
that this behavior has changed since then.  And, as I wrote earlier in
this thread, on my Windows machine it works as intended, i.e. the
problem you seem to describe does not exist.  See the recipe I posted
a few minutes ago.

So the only way I can explain this discrepancy is if one or more of
the following are true:

  . You tried this in Emacs that isn't "emacs -Q", and some
    customizations you have there have some side effects on this;
  . You need to enlarge mouse-wheel-inhibit-click-time, because the
    default value is too small for your fingers;
  . You have customized your mouse via some Windows facilities so that
    clicking the wheel no longer produces the events that mwheel.el is
    programmed to handle.
