Hence my 2nd patch which doesn't seem to have been resent by the
mailing-list yet (speaking of which, this list is awfully slow, it
takes more than 24hrs to process a message), which translates wheel
events into PgUp/Down and therefore allows to scroll the widget which
has keyboard focus. I find this is much more satisfying from an
ergonomic point of view, and in harmony with the "usual settings" of a 
wheel mouse under X.
