Package: rxvt-unicode Version: 9.22-3 When you scroll a pager in the secondary 
screen with the mouse wheel - and there has been something in the scrollback 
buffer, instead of the pager itself - the scrollback buffer will be scrolled by 
the mouse wheel. To solve this issue, it is necessary to introduce a new option 
into rxvt-unicode. After installing it, add the following to the configuration 
file: URxvt.secondaryWheel: 1

I spoke about this with upstream. As you said, the scrollback buffer currently
gets scrolled when you scroll in the secondary screen, unless the program you
are running captures these mouse events. This seems to be the correct behaviour.

If you want less (or whatever your PAGER is) to scroll its contents with the
mouse wheel, the correct place to implement this would be in less itself. Vim,
for example, does this.

You may be interested in using vimpager as your PAGER:

You are, of course, welcome to submit this patch upstream:

Best wishes,
