I'm running a Synergy client on Ubuntu and connecting to it with a Windows 7 client. One thing that irks me is that it's not transmitting side-scroll events (from a tilt-wheel). How can I get it to do so?

My current options are as follows; already 'hacked' to get forward/backwards working:

section: options
  mousebutton(6) = keystroke(WWWBack)
  mousebutton(7) = keystroke(WWWForward)
  mousebutton(4) = ;
  mousebutton(5) = ;

xev says the tiltwheel is button 6 & 7; but if my config has mousebutton(4) = keystroke(WWWBack) and likewise with forward, those events aren't forwarded to the client.
