Hey Claude,
  I've had this problem with various RedHat dirivatives,
(Fedora, RHEL, ConetOS, etc) for years.  I just put


in /etc/grub.conf, and the problem goes away.  Add it to the
"kernel" line, e.g.,

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 ro
root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet psmouse.proto=imps

(beware of line wrapping)
I remember that one - it's what I used to use to deal with mice
going out of control when connected to Belkin KVM's. But, if
memory serves, doesn't that eliminate the wheel functionality?

I happen to be using an old Linksys KVM switch, but I learned that trick with the Belkin switch that I used to use. I was surprised that I still needed to use the psmouse.proto directive with "modern" kernels, but I still do.
This gives me full mouse wheel support for my Logitech Cordless MouseMan
Optical mouse. I can scroll up and down, and use the wheel as MB3 like
I wanted to do. My xorg.conf looks normal:
Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier  "Mouse0"
       Driver      "mouse"
       Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
       Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
       Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
       Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

And it works for me...

Good luck,
