Wheel events in the panel are evil IMHO because it's too easy to trigger
them by accident.
When my browser is maximized, I often wheel-scroll the page a bit, leave
the mouse to reach my glass of Coke, read a bit more, then put my hand
back on the mouse to wheel-scroll further.
If by doing so I inadvertently move the mouse a few centimeters, the
cursor may end up out of the window and over the taskbar. When I
wheel-scroll I get completely unexpected behavior: my browser window
goes away and is replaced by the next window in the taskbar... frustrating.
I know this is not a notif-area problem (please let's not debate this
here), I just wanted to mention it to avoid repeating this mistake.
