Vojtech activated scroll handling in keyboard code by default so now
your keyboard is mapped to the mouse0 and the mouse moved to mouse1.

Vojtech, is is possible to detect whether a keyboard has scroll
wheel(s) by its ID?

I'd recommend using /dev/input/mice unless you want to _exclude_ some
of your input devices. It will get data from all you mice at once and
is always available.
