scrollback gesture should be disabled

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

I'm testing gutsy d-i i386 20071009.1 on a few-years-old laptop with a 40G hard disk. After the install (whole disk, LVM, crypto) is completed I found that:

If I move the mouse pointer into a Terminal window, and suddenly move it left, the terminal thinks that I'm trying to go into the scrollback and pages back about half a page.

This kind of mouse gesture interpretation is very intrusive and annoying and should be disabled. Users need to be able to move the mouse to focus on different windows, etc., and particularly on laptops with trackpads where multiple strokes may be needed to get the pointer to the desired location.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.

I don't have an Ubuntu install to hand right now as I write this email
but this should be easy enough to reproduce.

Ian.

Sorry, but your description is not clear enough. What specific steps should we take to recreate this bug? Thanks.
