Works for me with a Thinkpad R40 under X11-6.8.2 on Gentoo Linux.  My touchpad 
does both up/down & left/right scrolling & both work in Wing. I reported a 
bug about this a few dot releases ago, and it was quickly fixed.  If you're 
not using the latest, you might try upgrading.

I'm also hooked on touchpad scrolling.  And my EraserMouse. Why you would want 
to take your hands off the keyboard to move a mouse is beyond me. ;)

Thanks again to WingFolks for the great support.
