scroll wheel focus


I just got a scroll wheel mouse for the first time, and I noticed that
it has strict mouse focus; i.e. you must have the pointer inside the
widget to be scrolled. Does it work this way on Windows? It seems sort
of strange to me. As a user I expected the wheel to operate on the
active widget in the active window.

Of course if you know how the scroll wheel is implemented on X it
obviously works this way, since button presses go to the window under
the pointer.

Assuming this needs fixing, how would we do it?
