This is actually implemented internally at a fairly low level and there 
isn't a way to disable it right now.  

To avoid this problem on wheel mice with a soft middle button, there is
supposed to be a delay after wheel scrolling before a middle click is
reported.  It looks like this is 2/10 of a second in GTK2.  Our original
patch for this problem in GTK1 was 1 full second.  I suspect the
maintainers changed the time, and perhaps it's too short now.  Does that
seem consistent with what you're seeing?

Thanks for reporting this.
