Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Navigate to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > System 2. In one of the two scrollable windows, click on one of the tick boxes 3. Move the mouse to the other scrollable window and use the mouse wheel to scroll up and down Actual Results: Both of the scrollable windows scroll at the same time. Expected Results: Only the window under the mouse pointer should scroll. The window with the active tickbox should not scroll unless the mouse is over that window.
Yup. Win98SE bog-standard MS wheelmouse+drivers 0.9.7/2001122106, confirming.
Mousewheel + focus-ish: over to bryner for a look.

Hmm. The relevant preferences panel has been amended, and now only one of these boxes has a scrollbar. Following the steps to reproduce to attempt to get that one box to scroll, fails to do so. So this problem doesn't exist any more (yay!). (win98SE, 2002050406, 1.0 Branch) ->resolved fixed
