I think I understand your concerns, as I had something similar with my Acer (Travelmate 8000) with Vector 5.8 SOHO.

The only thing I can recommend is find out what keypresses the OS thinks it's getting when you tap the scroll keys (I did it through Xine's "grab" feature) and then try to assign them to a particular function.  I regret I can't help you with that last bit.
