Weirdly, this wasn't the case on my desktop (x86_64 kernel w/nvidia
driver). The edge scrolling works fine there, and it isn't explicitly turned
on. On my netbook (i686 w/intel video driver) is where it doesn't work. I'll
check the X configuration there when I get a chance, but I'm guessing this
will probably be the case.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
