[lug] Pointer goes nuts

I remembered this subject from a few days ago and decided to try to
activate the wheel on my mouse.  This is the relevant section from my
XF86Config, altered according to what I read in the archive.

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol        "IMPS/2"
#    Protocol        "MouseManPlusPS/2"
    Device          "/dev/mouse"
    Resolution      100
    Buttons         5
    ZAxisMapping    4 5

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

#    Protocol	"Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice

#    BaudRate	9600
#    SampleRate	150

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

#    Emulate3Buttons
#    Emulate3Timeout    50

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

#    ChordMiddle


I tried re-starting my window manager, and exiting and re-entering my
window manager (i.e., exited and re-started X), but the wheel still
does not work in konqueror.  I use fvwm as window manager but someone
wrote that he thought mouse wheel activation is wm-independent, so I
banked on that.  Any thoughts?  I do not have to reboot, surely?
