just doing a fresh config of mouse scroll and I note a few changes that  
are worth a comment.

1/ I set up mouse scroll to zoom in and out and exited. I get the  
following helpful msg:

You will have to restart GIMP for the following changes to take effect:


The problem is I did not change either of those settings. So is this a

work this seems like a good time to bring these points up.
