In the 4.0 pre-alpha, zooming with the Intuos 4 wheel is no longer smooth while hovering the pen over the tablet. It seems like it's ignoring a lot of the wheel input and will only periodically trigger a zoom, making it very tedious to zoom. Lifting the pen completely away from the tablet causes the issue to go away until it's brought back in range of the surface.
This does not happen in 3.1.4 or any other previous version I've used.
OS version is Windows 10 Pro build 1703, fully updated.
Wacom tablet driver is v6.3.22-6. (latest at this time)
might be caused by Nicholas' scroll wheel patch...?
(or maybe this actually fixes things???)

I responded to an email I got from Boudewijn about this bug.
In short, I have a (not entirely solid) suspicion that it's unrelated, but don't have the hardware to see how things worked before the patch.

> 09:24:33 < nicholasl> boud: In your patch for the bug I just mistakenly linked, you clear "d->accumulatedScrollDelta" in KisInputManager::eventFilterImpl() whenever the event is not a WheelEvent. I think this'd make it so anytime the pen moves, it'd get reset. Additionally, the patch is not in the stable branch, so that would make the older versions work just fine.

I wonder if this bug would be fixed by either removing the bit that resets it whenever a non-QWheelEvent event takes place, or by also not resetting it when a TabletMove event happens.
The function is in libs/ui/input/kis_input_manager.cpp if anyone would like to take a look at it.
*** Bug 395102 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Note from bug 395102:
"Using the scroll wheel to zoom on an Intuos Pro has become very slow since version 4. There appears to be some similarities to this bug report : https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=381452 however the issue persists whether the stylus is hovering over the tablet or not...
Essentially the zoom is very unresponsive and you really have to go at it like some kind of turntable DJ to zoom in and out. Personally I upped the wheel's sensitivity to maximum in the tablet settings but it's still a little slow.
This only affects the zoom functionality, all other scrolling works as normal (albeit really fast since I changed the settings)"
Actually, I have noticed that lifting the stylus away from the tablet *does* lessen the effect, as noted by the original report.
Apologies if my issue was misleading

Fix hiccups when using wheel on the Wacom's tablets
The tablet generates ctrl-down+wheel+ctrl-up group of events, so we
shouldn't reset the accumulated wheen delta on every key and tablet
