I don't explain it either. I notice it. It looks like the wm does not
count 1 workspace for 1 mouse scrollwheel mouvement, when rolling it
quickly. A detail which gives a "feeling" I don't like. 
Just add more than 5 workspaces and compare scrolling on pager with
scrolling on desktop. There is an obvious difference.
