Thanks for the pointer.
Your problem is slightly different from mine:
you don't like the beeps,
I don't like the scroll amount.

Well, the workaround is only a partial fix. (see below)

My problem is that there are too many mouse events are generated,
so a touch to the mouse results in a huge scroll.
Basically, a scroll means either end-of-buffer or beginning-of-buffer.

All the other applications seem to handle the mouse as I want them too.
The problem seems to be with Emacs.

Okay, so you are confirming my impression that the problem is with Emacs.

elp-instrument-function appears to indicate that mwheel-scroll is called
much more often than I want it to be called - 20+ times for a simple
touch of the mouse.

If money were measured in piles, I would have had a pit of it.
