I don't think the mouse is the problem.  I am running a Logitech optical
mouse here in USB mode on my desktop and the wheel works just fine.  On
my laptop the same mouse works just fine through a PS2 interface.  FYI -
I am using a happy hacking keyboard here with the mouse connected to a
little USB HUB in the keyboard.  Very sweet!
