I am not the developer of the X front end, but I have worked with it long
enough to be familiar with its arcana.
To do what you describe under most X applications, one would need to
find the event associated with the wheel on your mouse. Then an override
resource setting mapping this event to a scrolling function would need
to be added to an X resource file such as XMathematica or .Xdefaults.
The Mathematica X front end, with version 3.0 and later, allows only a small
set of events to be altered this way. They are listed in the XMathematica file.
<Btn1Down>,<Btn1Up>: selection-put() \n\
<Btn2Down>: selection-get() \n\
<KeyPress>osfPaste: paste-from-clipboard() \n\
There are no other events that can be mapped this way.
