We just looked at this and it works for us... under Mandrake 8.1 with
the Sawfish window manager.  Thus, it's likely some configuration problem
on your system.

Take a look in your X config file (probably /etc/X11/XFConfig).
Adding an entry in the "Pointer" section like this may help:

Option ZAxisMapping "4 5"

(you may have to omit "Option" keyword or the quotes around "4 5")

Details here (also covers handling >1 wheel):

In any case, Wing (gtk actually) expects button 4 and 5 to be the
way in which the wheel is emulated under X.

Please let us know if that doesn't work for some reason.
