disable scroll mouse



I really dislike the default behavior of the pointer and scroll mouse on Fedora.

For example if I have two applications open, and slide the mouse from one to the other, the focus does not follow. I am okay with that, stay with me.

However, rotating the scroll mouse over (say) a combo box on the unfocused window starts changing the values in that combo box. Open two instances of OpenOffice writer and move your scroll pointer over the main panes and the combo for the font size to see this. This seems very, very wrong.

Now imagine a application with a scrollable pane, sparsely populated with combo boxes or whatnot. The pointer goes over the pane, the scroll wheel gets bumped or nudged, and the pane scrolls slightly. Ignoring the lack of focus issue, fine again.

The problem is, scrolling the pane and having the pointer enter a combo box as the pane slides, suddenly the pointer stops there and starts altering the contents of the combo...with no left click at any time. This just seems very, very wrong.

How can I change this or disable the scroll mouse entirely (other than the obvious of changing out the mouse)?
