I was unable to reproduce this one either on Windows or Linux (Mandrake).
It always immediately scrolls down as expected.  Does it do it on all
files or only certain ones?  I've noticed some wheel mice can be flakey
about whether or not they actually emit wheel events (at the hardware
level), but it wouldn't be constrained to such a specific case.

Yes, this is annoying.  It may be non-trivial to fix because of the design
of the gtk/X clipboard code.  But I've added it to our list.
