A Japanese user reported that he couldn't scroll with TrackPoint. He uses USB Travel Keyboard.
He could enable scroll by changing a value of ui.trackpoint_hack.enabled to 1. So I'm sure it's a TrackPoint detection failure.
He found a TrackPoint registry key under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\UltraNavUSB".
See the URL field for details (Japanese).

We should take this on 1.9.2.  Virtually 0 risk, and will let some users scroll again.

a=beltzner for 1.9.2.4

We're removing these hacky registry entries on uninstall, right?

We don't create these keys. We only check the existence.
Ah, perfect, thanks.
