I use a wheel mouse, but I do not use imwheel.  gnome-terminal has
native support for wheel mouse, and looks for buttons 4 and 5.  If I
recall correctly, imwheel simulates keypresses from the scroll wheel.  I
suspect that this is what is causing the problem.  Not sure what the fix
is, other than to stop using imwheel.  I could, of course, be barking up
entirely the wrong tree having never used imwheel...
