...which means it saw an event, not necessarily the right event.

I could be wrong. I just remember reading somewhere that there are 
certain event ID's that Qt doesn't "know" (and that they were related to 
"multimedia keys").

I don't remember the thread, and I also don't know the event ID's to 
google it myself. I'm just saying I remember some sort of Qt limitation 
that *might* be the problem you are seeing, and that it is probably 
worthwhile looking into if you're encountering the same issue, since 
this thread doesn't otherwise seem to be making a lot of progress.

Or... you could simply be hitting a design limitation. I don't know that 
anyone planned on people trying to map the scroll wheel (or even if it's 
possible Qt-side).

If you haven't yet, I would suggest also asking around in #qt and #kde 
on freenode.

I don't know which door you mean.
It's locked.
