according to http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.5/doc/man/man4/mousedrv.4.html

Option "ButtonMapping" "N1 N2 [...]"
Specifies how physical mouse buttons are mapped to logical buttons.
Default: "1 2 3 8 9 10 ...".

That is the reason that in Xorg the scroll (vertical) does not work, xev 
reports events for button 8 and 9 because moused reports button 4 and 5, but 
xorg remapped to 8 an 9
