 Perhaps you could make sure it works? Right now I'm a bit busy on another
project plus I have never actually tested a wheel-mouse on my Milan. I
dont think I have the TOS that supports wheels either. So if you who knows
how it _should_ work could fix this, I'm sure a binary with wheel-support
will appear on xaaes.atariforge.net in no time ;-)

 If you cannot do this, we just have to wait until I, or someone else, get
around to it.

 Thanks :) But the button handling is better, but not perfect. Keyboard
shift/ctrl/alt status should be included in the mouse packet, for example.
 I'm thinking separate drivers for pointing devices and keyboard, which
even the VDI should use. I think great things are in progress :)
