Description of problem:
ScrollWheel on my USB mouse does not work with 2.6 kernels.  Here is
the simple XFree config generated by kudzu for it:

Section "InputDevice"
# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
        Identifier  "DevInputMice"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"

I have no idea what's the problem, as it's a USB mouse, not PS2 ;-).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Give it a roll

Actual Results:  Nothing interesting

Expected Results:  A cool scroll in your browser..

It's fixed in kernel-2.6.1-1.43 for me.  Closing.  Open up if you feel
like that.
