I don't have anything with a Trackpoint, but it looks to me like putting

Section "InputClass"
        # Novell Bug #597214
        Identifier      "IBM TPPS/2 TrackPoint"
        MatchProduct    "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint"
        MatchIsPointer  "on"
        Driver  "evdev"
        Option  "EmulateWheel"  "on"
        Option  "EmulateWheelButton"    "2"
        Option  "YAxisMapping"    "4 5"
	Option	"XAxisMapping"	  "6 7"
        Option  "Emulate3Buttons"    "on"
        Option  "EmulateWheelTimeout"    "200"
EndSection

or similar in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/11-trackpoint.conf might fix it.
