When trying to scroll up/down, left/right with the mouse stick of a IBM ThinkPad T20
mozilla does not show the correct pointer. It should be a symbol of four arrows, but
mozilla shows only the arrows for up/down directions. That would be correct for
a wheel mouse but not for a stick. But even in these directions it does not
start scrolling the page as other applications on same system do.
When attaching a Logitech Trackman Marble Wheel even the mouse pointer does'nt
change. And still no scrolling in either direction.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a wheel or stick mouse. (e.g. Logitech Trackman Marble Wheel, IBM
ThinkPad T20)
2. In mozilla open a window with a page larger than the window.
3. Try to scroll with the wheel or stick of your mouse.

Actual Results:  
As it is a lack of function nothing happened.

Expected Results:  
Scroll the page within the window in up/down direction with a wheel mouse and in all
four directions with the stick mouse of the T20.

Reproduced on two systems with different hardware and operating systems OS/2
4.51 and 4.52
OS: other → OS/2
could be a dupe of bug "20618" but unsure about OS/2
