Anybody else notice this?

Sometimes when i hover my mouse over an IE aero preview box i can scroll up and down with my mouse wheel and both the aero preview box and the full screen preview will scroll too
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Anyone else notice this and is there a solution?

I'm on build 7260 x86; clean install

Cool. This is one I didn't know.

It works for me with my Logitech mouse, but I'm using the OOB Microsoft drivers for it (as with most of my other hardware)

I wish they would integrate it into the OS.
Like documents etc.
An especially good use for it would be in business, say someone is looking for info in an Office 2010 (shameless plug ) document but needs to be fast. Instead of clicking to open the document, scrolling to the info, remembering the info, clicking to open the email, and then putting it into the email, all they would have to do is hover, scroll, un-hover, type.
And if a MS employee sees this please put it in a SP or something!!

Me neither, cool. Did you know also you can close windows with the aero preview using the middle mouse button, saves you having to click the little red X in the top right of the preview.
