Mouse wheel stops working when configuring my tablet WizardPen, on Linux.

Mouse wheel stops working when configuring my tablet WizardPen, on Linux.
I'm on Ubuntu 14.04. I connected my Genius WizardPen and it install it self. So, technically it works out-of-the-box.

Now, I have to configure in GIMP. So, I enter in "Configure Input Devices" and I found this list:

As I connect the tablet, it works like the mouse: with no sensivity.

If I set the "UC-LOGIC Tablet..." to sreen, the sensivity starts to work, but the mouse DOESN'T draw anything.
If I set the "2.4GHz 2way RF Receiver" (the mouse) to screen, I can use the tablet with one tool and the mouse with another... GREAT! But... mouse wheel stops working (it doesn't zoom).

I go to "Additional Input Controllers", in Preferences and I click on "Mouse Wheel" (or "Main Mouse Wheel". This window:

If I check the "Dump events...", the wheel dumps information ONLY if the "2.4GHz..." is Disable (not Screen). When I set it to screen, there's no information, no dump... NO WHEEL.

(I tried with another mouse and the problem is still here)

Is this a Linux related GIMP bug?

If you use the pen/stylus instead of the mouse in the above specific configuration, can you draw/use tools? With the pen / stylus?

Do you have a wireless mouse?
I'm guessing by the 2.4 ghz RF reciever that you do.
If you have a touchpad mouse, temporarily disable it from the pad itself if it has a button.

Also make sure you don't have any cordless phones operating on the same frequency (2.4ghz) as this can cause interference / malfunction of wireless products using the same frequency.

Yes, with that config, I CAN draw with the pen and WITH sensivity. But I CAN'T with the mouse.

I have a wireless mouse and an USB mouse. Both are working OK outside and inside GIMP. Both have the same issue. It's not a hardware/wireless problem, but a software/configuration/bug one.

Thanks for comment!

As I think it is a bug, I reported here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=730093
