I use Gedit a lot and thus tend to have a lot of tabs open at any one time. In Gedit 2.* I could switch between tabs using my mouse wheel but since Oneiric I can't. I assume this is because of various GTK "upgrades".

Does anybody know of a plugin (or workable fix -- that doesn't require me to recompile everything and its brother) that will see me back to mousewheeling my day away?

It may not be the answer you want to hear, but it looks like changing tabs with the mouse wheel was removed in gtk+.
