Thanks for the suggestion - yes, these have all been reported to Apple. However I thought it would be helpful to post this in case others have the same issues so that people don't feel it's only their Mac. If anyone else has this issue and perhaps a fix or hack to allleviate these issues are always great to hear.
For now, some things I have done to alleviate the issue:
1. turn off inertia for mouse (accessibility settings in System Prefs)
2. turn on "show scroll bars" to always (general settings in System Prefs)
3. routinely restart Mail (worse, routinely restart the Mac - something I have not done since pre-os x days...)
So far, I've tried other various tips like deleting library files to fix Mail but those only last a short while. Hope Apple fixes these in the next update.

Scrolling problems for me too in Safari. The MM will stop scrolling randomly and I need to restart Safari to get it going again. Furthermore, when scrolling stops if I turn off the MM and connect a USB mouse it still won't scroll.
Another problem, not sure if connected to the mouse problem, is that my iMac will freeze at times when Safari is operating. The mouse will move but not respond, and the keyboard also does not respond. Have to turn off the machine with the power key and reboot.
27 inch iMac 11,1, late 2009
8 GB memory
Have a similarly configured 27 inch iMac, late 2012, works perfectly, no scrolling or Safari problems.

Thanks chumtarou. Huge help on your part, as I have been struggling with scrolling in the Finder windows, but the issue doesn't seem to exist in other programs. Turning on the scroll bars saves me constantly having to get rid of preferences and was an ideas that hadn't occured to me until you mentioned.

Thank you, chumtarou. I just found that toggling the setting to "with inertia" made scrolling work again for me (on my Mail inbox). We'll see how it goes from here. It was also helpful to turn on the scroll bars to at least have a work-around allowing not to have to relaunch Mail app to permit scrolling again w/ magic mouse.

For mail scrolling try the fix that diveinn came up with as noted here:

Thank you Tbirdvet, this is a new method I haven't tried yet.
Interestingly, I have reinstalled my Adobe CC apps and deleted my Adobe CS6 apps (and CS6 prefs) - since then, the scrolling issues have subsided. The good behavior of my mouse might be temporary, as with other fixes I've tried, but a different issue I had was with Acrobat Pro locking up intermittently and this too seems to have alleivated that as well.
I will definitely give the cache deletion a try once I see the mouse issue come back - I've been holding off responding as the Adobe reinstall may be a short lived fix but keeping my fingers crossed.
Utazdevl and UltimateFrisbeeRules, glad things are a bit better for you - hope Tbirdvet's cache suggestion works for you! Tbirdvet, please let us know if this is a permanent solution for you.
In the meantime, 10.9.1 hopefully will be released soon with a permanent fix for everyone.

Quick update: appears deleting cache is also a temporary fix.
So far, deleting cache, deleting specific Mail libarary files, turning off 'displays have separate spaces', etc. all appear to be temporary.
Hopefully 10.9.1 will come out soon to fix this permanently.

I have installed 10.9.1 and appears the scrolling issue has returned already.
Upon wake from sleep and a few emails later, the scrolling issue is back.
So far all fixes seem to be temporary.
The only one I have not tried yet is a clean install.

Exact same with 10.9.1. I see it most often in Safari and the only thing that - temporarily - fixes it is to quit and restart Safari. I submitted a problem report to Apple before the OS update, will do again.

I found in another discussion to go to the hidden user library, preferences and delete: com.apple.driver.appleHIDmouse.plist. This made the scrolling start again in 10.9.1. Been working for about 4 hours and still OK but time will tell.

This non scrolling issue got me thinking so I did some digging into non scrolling issues starting with Lion, then ML and now Mavericks. The common link seems to be the wired mouse or Magic mouse or trackpad driver plist file. Depending on which you have one of the main fixes is to delete that file in your hidden library preferences folder. It appears to get corrupted causing this issue especially when upgrading the OS.
Wired mouse: com.apple.driver.appleHIDmouse.plist
Magic Mouse: com.apple.drriver.applebluetoothmultitouch.mouse.plist
Track pad: com.apple.driver.applebluetoothmultitouch.trackpad.plist
In finder under option GO click on library and then to preferences folder and find the file that matches your device and move to trash but do not delete until you test all is OK. If all works empty the trash. A new file will be generated.
If this fixes your issue please let this forum know.

Issue of non scrolling returns. Deleting any of the noted files or caches seem to be only temporary. I will now try the scrolling with inertia setting and see what happens. I need to test for 2-3 days to verify a possible fix.
