I any application/window or particular ones?
I only ask because the main changes in 2.18.4 were related to this option (so a clear chance of buggering it up) but I'm a little surprised it does not work at all (given that this build fixed the issues reported and is working fine for me). It may well be a combo of Windows 7 and the changes as I suspect all that had problems were on Windows 10...

Any chance of getting some debug logging? Ideally of it working in 2.18.3 and not working in 2.18.4? :)

I'm away for the weekend so I wont get a chance to investigate until Sunday afternoon at the earliest (and thats not all that likely).

http://gist.githubusercontent.com/redde ... 2.18.3.log

https://gist.githubusercontent.com/redd ... 2.18.4.log

The behavior I noticed was the scrolling with 2.18.4 was spotty, sometimes it would get it's act together, most of the time not. Also, it would act as though the mouse was still hovering over screen A and scroll screen A despite being over screen B while scrolling.

Let me know if you need anything else.

OK unfortunately there is not a lot to go on in the logs (or at least, I haven't found it yet if there is).
I haven't been able to reproduce this in 2.18.5 on Windows 7 here yet either...

Can you:
a) answer my first question (does this problem happen in all applications or a specific one, like a browser)?
b) send me a copy of your profile?

The main change between 2.18.3 and 2.18.5 was to do with scrolling the window under the cursor and detection of the window, but primarily focused on Chrome as that was being difficult.

Sorry it took so long, had some unfortunate personal things come up.

It happens in all windows, not just browsers. It also happens in the same application if there are multiple scroll bars. For example, an IDE with multiple panels. I can focus on one panel and then move to another panel but the scrolling stays with the originally focused panel.

He there, while trawling through my bug list to see what I needed to look at next, I found this.... Did we ever resolve this (I guess not as I never replied to your above message (and you thought you took a long time!).

I#m already up to 2.19 beta 5 - so its a good time to try and fix this - if its still a problem (there is a small chance its been fixed already as there have been a few fixes in the previous betas, never mind 2.18.x releases).
