Sounds like a scroll-wheel problem.  There are various variables for
dealing with various aspects of those problems.  For example:

mouse-wheel-inhibit-click-time is a variable defined in `mwheel.el'.
Its value is 0.35

Documentation:
Time in seconds to inhibit clicking on mouse wheel button after scroll.

You can customize this variable.
