windows are minimizing when scrolling page

Description of problem:
When you open some "longer" page - for example in Konqueror - and scroll down and up with the mouse scrollwheel for a while and moving cursor in the same time, window is suddenly minimized.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Konqueror
2. Quickly scroll up and down while moving the cursor
Window is suddenly minimized.
It shouldn't minimize.
To convince you that it's not my fault, I have recorded video - you can see how Konqueror minimizes at around 00:08, it minimizes again at 00:49, then at 00:57 it minimizes Eclipse.
Correction - it's not minimized, it's only sent to background.
It even weirder - if you open one window and second window above the first and you are scrolling up and down while moving cursor, sometimes it scrolls with underlying window - the above window doesn't have to have scrollbars at all!
It seems only like problem in virtual environment - it's happening in qemu-kvm, but I have tried it on bare metal and couldn't reproduce it.
What graphics driver are you using in the VM, qxl or cirrus (or vesa)?
I'm using qxl graphics driver.
So this looks like a qxl issue, maybe also a problem on the SPICE client side.

Hi Jan, I never reproduced that issue. Could you try to reproduce with qemu SDL and VNC drivers? Are you using the touchpad border or a real mouse scroll, or some other device? Does this happen also with windows guest? Perhaps you could also examine/dump the flow of inputs with input-utils and attach it here.
I am able to reproduce with VNC. I am using real mouse scroll - I cannot reproduce it on touchpad, because I'm unable to move with cursor and scroll on touchpad at the same time. I'll try it in windows. I have dump from input-event from input-utils package, I'll attach it, but I don't see anything useful in it.

Given that F18 is close to end-of-life, I don't think this bug will be fixed, so closing as WONTFIX. Jan, if you can still reproduce with F19+ VM (with latest qxl driver from updates testing, please reopen)
