Hi Curtis,
on an Ubuntu system I use a script, which calls Mathematica with parameters
which let me use the mouse-wheel and the NumLock-key. Additionally it sets the
environment variable XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS to 1, which removed problems
similar to the one you describe. Maybe it is worth a try (the little utility
"imwheel" has to be installed):
petsie@leierkasten:~$ cat run-math
#!/bin/sh
# run-math.sh version 4
# `-r' flag means don't use the "Configurator"
# and pass wheel events to the root window
#
# Ensure a single instance of Mathematica with
# the option `-singleLaunch'.
# Allow the use of the NumLock key with the
# '-primaryModifierMask' and '-secondaryModifierMask'
# switches.
MARGS="-singleLaunch -primaryModifierMask Mod1Mask -secondaryModifierMask
Mod3Mask"
if `ps -C imwheel > /dev/null`; then
XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 Mathematica $1 $MARGS
else
imwheel -r
XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 Mathematica $1 $MARGS
imwheel -kq
fi
