Scrolling disables mouse

Overall I really like the remote but there's one issue that drives me crazy. When I scroll on a webpage using the directional keys on the front (not the keyboard side), the mouse is disabled and I have to re-enable it. Really annoying, especially since the mouse enable button is not well placed.

Two questions:

1) Is this a designed behavior or is my unit defective?
2) Is there any way to make it so that scrolling doesn't disable the mouse?

I've had luck customizing the remote using AutoHotkey but I can't find the trigger to fix this.

I tried emailing Minix support but didn't hear anything back from them.

Thanks in advance for any tips you can provide.
