Default Mouse-wheel nudge left-right now generates key-presses, not buttons 6+7

Since upgrading to Fedora 14 from 12, I'm seeing my wheel-mouse
generating the *key* presses <Left> and <Right> instead of the expected
button clicks <button-6> and <button-7>.

This means that while it still works in, say, Firefox (where <Left> and
<Right> scroll the current view), and I can move my caret left and right
(!), it won't work anywhere else like it used to (e.g., directory tree views).

Any ideas how I can get the old functionality back?
