As a new user, I have found the scrollwheel operation on my 3rd generation iPod is sluggish and unresponsive compared to the Apple firmware. This makes scrolling through a large database a real chore, and makes games like "bubble" very difficult.

My patch increases the sensitivity of the scrollwheel if it is rotated quickly in one direction. The effect can be varied by changing the value of "MIN_SENSITIVITY".

Please note that I am only a hobbyist, and not a C programmer. I will look on any criticism as a learning experience!
