XWin -ignoremousewheelpress

Hi Jon,

maybe you are interested in this idea:

The wheel of a wheel mouse also working as middle mouse button can be quite annoying, when you accidently paste lots of lines into
an xterm while scrolling up and down.

I thought an option -ignoremousewheelpress to XWin would be a great enhancement. Scrolling were possible, but clicking the wheel
were ignored.
(Using it would only make sense together with -emulate3buttons.)

Luckily I found another mouse driver which allowed me to diable this directly on Windows, so it's fine for me, but such a mouse
driver might not be available for all mice.
