I have a nine button optical usb mouse (GE) and I would like to get
the second scroll-wheel either working correctly or disabled.
At first I thought the drivers wouldn't support the extra scroll-wheel
and just ignore it or treat them both as one.

This seems to indicate that only seven buttons are supported but, I
have strange behavior in X.
Option "Protocol" "wsmouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/wsmouse"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
This seemed to work at first but, it has annoying side-affects.
Using xev I can see that the two side buttons don't work at all -
unless I've just used the second scroll-wheel. Also, the second
scroll-wheel send the same signal (4 5) unless I've just used the
first - then it send a 7 sig.
This means that when scrolling down a page, I move to the right about
have the time and can't go back. (I also can't go anywhere sideways
while still). I don't mind the side buttons, I just want to stop
this annoying seventh button.
