you don't have any button mapping set, do you?
can you run evtest on the device file and post the output when the wheel
doesn't work? (you have to do that without X running, otherwise it'll grab the
device from you).
the wheel code in evdev is fairly simple, so I'd wager a bet on either
configuration or hw issues.
