[XForms] mouse wheel in browser crashes whole app

I have a pretty complicated XForms application for controlling the
telscope. One of the object used is a "normal" (no selection) browser
for displaying messages to the user. I have noticed that the mouse wheel
(functioning, as reported by "xev", as Button 4 & 5) works mostly as
expected, i.e. scrolling the browser. Howerver, quite often, possibly
(although I am not sure) when the browser has many lines and I rotate
the wheel fast, the whole application crashes badly.

As such a crash is a very bad thing while the user is observing with the
telescope, I would like to disable the wheel, possibly only for that
browser (or my XForms application), as it worls fine in other
applications like xterm or mozilla. Is it doable?

regards, Michal.
