This bug is known by some time, since I can't find any bugreport and since at kernel bugzilla we believe is a xorg bug (since 6.8.2 worked with the same kernel) I report here:
xorg-7.0: "Mouse protocol autodetection
If you have Protocol "auto" set in xorg.conf for your mouse, it may not work. You may need to specify Protocol "ExplorerPS/2" or "IMPS/2" for your wheel to work. "
This is part of the preliminary modular xorg howto here: http://dev.gentoo.org/~spyderous/xorg-x11/migrating_to_modular_x_howto.txt I tested this bug and found I had (change of protocol to "IMPS/2" fixed).
