I've also got a Logitech (a wireless optical model),
which I'm actually rather impressed with.
I haven't noticed myself accidently pushing the scroll
wheel to side; but ...
the horizontal scrolling doesn't actually do anything
on my system, which I've always put down to the age
(I've been running SUSE 9.1 for c.2½ years).
it's a (recent) replacement for an el cheapo ball mouse,
so the system wasn't installed with it present. AFAICR,
I didn't have to do/configure anything to get the normal
functionality to work; it just worked.
