Much thanks for the workaround, in any case. xinput's obviously not really an enduser-focused tool, and the property number for evdev scrolling distance has changed to three different ones in the couple of days I've been using it. But it's nice to get basic functionality out of this mouse. I also have to think there's been a change of defaults somewhere in this case, since I'd actually used this mouse on a previous Ubuntu install....

I certainly hope Unity 8 will address some of these basic issues lying around, but again ... upstream or not, this is a bug that's existed for nine years. I don't expect a quick resolution for the same problem.
