Just to clarify, if you perform slow scroll gesture and the accumulator 
will be less than threshold means that you should not scroll, no? 
Because the sum of overall scroll events are less than one line. The 
fact that you need to "move a certain minimum distance before the scroll 
takes effect" is OSX bug, I wonder how the native app works, do they 
have the same "deadzone"?

Per pixel scrolling should depend from the preciseWheelRotation, 
otherwise on the retina display you will be able to scroll only by the 
units(2 pixels).

Best regards, Sergey.
