Description of problem:
When installing or using mouseconfig, my Logitech cordless wheelmouse is not
recognized as well as other wheel mouses. There is no "generic wheelmouse" in
the menu.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2. try to find the correct mouse type
3. start X and try to use the wheel

Expected Results:  Wheel is working.

I have just completed a text mode interface for redhat-config-mouse, which means
that mouseconfig will be deprecated in the next release of Red Hat Linux.  

Therefore, I will not be putting any development time towards fixing mouseconfig
bugs, so I'm closing this as 'wontfix'.

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
