This is fixed in newer metacity, will be fixed in next release.

2003-05-20  Havoc Pennington  <hp@pobox.com>
	* src/keybindings.c (meta_change_keygrab): the mask 
	display->ignored_modifier_mask wasn't being bound, 
	due to "<" instead of "<=" (most people didn't notice
	as display->ignored_modifier_mask included Scroll_Lock).
	Red Hat bugzilla #91301 reported by Youssef Makki

	* src/display.c (meta_change_button_grab): make corresponding
	change for button grabs.

As a workaround you can configure Scroll_Lock on mod5, if you know how to 
play with X keymaps.
