RDP mouse scroll wheel behaves as 4 buttins i.s.o. 2 buttons.

Reported by: matthijs Owned by:

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

Windows XP host, Debian Lenny client, VBoxHeadless, full screen RDP client on localhost. Slowly turning the mouse wheel results in button events, button 4 goes up and button 5 goes down. Turning the mouse wheel faster, then the buttons change to 6 and 7 respectively. This is unexpected and unwanted behavior. [Use xev to see what happens] Please make the mouse wheel behavior independent of the rotation speed.

I agree this is very annoying. Not sure VB is to blame though, here's another report I found and a workaround that I'm happy with:
