Bug#265133: xterm: horizontal scroll wheel causes beeps

Package: xterm
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-6
Severity: wishlist

If you accidentally use a horizontal scroll wheel (buttons 6 and 7) in an
xterm, it beeps.  I am using the EmulateWheel feature of XFree86 to simulate
both the vertical and horizontal wheel, and when "scrolling" vertically, I
inevitably cause a few horizontal wheel events.  So this beep is rather

I tried to work around this by adding empty translations for buttons 6 and
7, but as far as I can tell, Xt only supports 5 buttons, so there is no hope
of that.  I presume that has something to do with the beeps, but I did not
dig far enough to discover exactly what causes them.  If it is simply the
case that every "bogus" event causes a beep, maybe there can be an option to
disable that.
