I think this may depend on your mouse and the OS. On my Mac using a 
magic mouse the amount of scroll depends on how fast I move my finger. 
On a mouse with a fixed scroll wheel it's probably different and may 
depend on the number of messages the scroll wheel sends for each change.

I'm just guessing, so it would be interesting to see if you get 
different results with a different mouse.
