Also, under KDE at least, buttons 6 and 7 are scroll left and scroll right by 
default.  It's probably better to just ignore this though, and not think 
about "Wheel Left" and "Wheel Right" buttons. *grin*

Any suggestions as to where?  Probably the best place would be in a FAQ or 
help file somewhere.  I'm sure I won't get around to that though...
