I only have one so I can't tell you.

When was the last time you took your mouse apart and cleaned it? I've had them act weird because of gunk trapped in and under the buttons, especially when you let kids use your PC. Sometimes lint and stuff gets down in the little gears that control the wheel action and make it act funny.
Well, if I did, it would probably be another optical mouse and I think it's that that's causing the problem.
A new 3-button scroll mouse is probably only $10 or something. That's an option, I guess.
I thought it might be something like that.
dwm sits really close to libX11. There is no middle-men at all. That's why it's kinda ugly, but also why it's so fast and fun to hack. Maybe that's also why your mouse works better.
I think several of us might find that useful.
If you want, I could clean up my well-hacked version, tarball it, and attach it to a post here. It's only 23k bzip'd. Smaller than most jpegs.
