They are some old Master views.

Use to have an old wheel mouse that did not work.

That is what was present when I build all of these systems.

Now I have a nice Logitech wireless kyb/mouse plugged into the 
KVM.  The use wheel is working on my Win32 systems and on 2 other 
Centos builds.

Now in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf  the Input Device protocol is "IMPS/2"

A friend had me try "PS/2" and things SEEMed a little bit 
better.  Then "auto" and now it seems to be the same as before.

But wait.  When the system booked, I was switched to another 
system.  When I boot and leave that system as the 'active' one, I get 
a similar action as to when it was "PS/2".

I did an Alt-D while it was starting so I could see the startup 
messages and I see that that mouse console services started 'OK'.

Thing is it was fine before, and now not.  And the other systems are fine...
