Whenever I use the side of my touchpad to scroll through text in a channel window, sometimes the wrong channel buffer text is scrolled. EG: Sometimes #gentoo on freenode scrolls instead of #gentoo on EFnet.

If I'm connected to 2 networks (freenode and efnet) and I am joined to #gentoo:efnet and also #gentoo:freenode, whenever I use the touchpad to scroll up/down the buffer in #gentoo:efnet, #gentoo:freenode scrolls instead. I'm forced to use the scrollbar if I want to scroll up/down the previous conversations that occured in #gentoo:efnet.

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

I'm using an asus g50v. Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 x64. mIRC v6.35

Thanks

Just tried exactly what you said, and i'm having no issues using the touchpad's scrollbar.

Can you try this on a clean install of mIRC?
Can you test this with a mouse wheel (if you have a mouse)?

Is the active window #gentoo when scrolling #gentoo? I imagine it's possible that your touchpad does not scroll to the window it's hovering over, so even if your mouse is over "Window A", it will still scroll wherever the focus is, even if that's in "Window B". It would also explain why it only happens "sometimes".
