I have changed settings as Pete advised. Both variants (old and new) are 
working (scrolling) but described effect remains.
Why I think that scrolling up works as "scroll + left click": for 
example, in Opera scrolling up at the top of document (when real scroll 
is impossible) result in marking the word under cursor and appearing 
context menu for very short time.
