      Description

      Name: rmT116609 Date: 06/04/2003


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.2-beta"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2-beta-b19)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-beta-b19, mixed mode)


      FULL OS VERSION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]


      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      Thinkpad T40P with Trackpoint

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Thinkpad emulates the mouse wheel by simultaneously click on a scroll button and dragging the Trackpoint button. This works perfectly in Mozilla, however is addMouseWheelListener doesn't detect the event. Additionally, an external Logitech mouse on the same Thinkpad mouse wheel works correctly.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Get your hands on a Thinkpad (also fails on an A20P with win98SE).

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      addMouseWheelListener should detect Trackpoint wheel.
      ACTUAL -
      it doesn't

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
