Comment 29 for bug 271706

I ran xev and turned the wheel a bit and the event is repeated infinitely. The only thing I could find that would stop the repeating is to Ctrl-Alt-F1 to a different terminal.

KeyRelease event, serial 34, synthetic NO, window 0x3600001,
    root 0x7a, subw 0x0, time 18887985, (167,-11), root:(841,15),
    state 0x0, keycode 122 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False
