I use Safari 5.1 at work on Win 7x64 and I found that the scroll wheel never worked. It worked under the previous 5.0.x builds, though. I'm currently using a Logitech MX revolution mouse and I disabled the Smooth Scrolling option and now Safari uses the scroll wheel correctly 100% of the time. So I thought I'd point this out for anyone who has been frustrated using Safari 5.1 on Windows with a scroll wheel problem. Try disabling any smooth scrolling options (in my case in the SetPoint app but could also be in the Mouse control panel or other places) and see what happens.

Safari, Windows 7, 5.1
