I'm n to Aware off any changes to event handling in X11 between those two
VMs. Since the bug seems to be timing related it is not inconceivable that
the issue iOS that the newer VM is faster and that hence the bug manifests
because the newer VM is faster, not that it processes mouse wheel events
any different. SO before we condemn the current VM can we please look for
candidate changes and do some more careful analysis of the bug. So far
we're identifying symptoms not causes, and until the bug is explained
simply reverting the VM is not being objective.
