[SOLVED]how to reverse the scroll direction on my trackpoint?

I have a trackpoint on my thinkpad. For various reasons I have had to set it up again today and used this in xorg.conf:

Section "InputClass"
    Identifier            "Trackpoint Wheel Emulation"
    MatchProduct          "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint|DualPoint Stick|Synaptics Inc.$
    MatchDevicePath       "/dev/input/event*"
    Option                "EmulateWheel"                "true"
    Option                "EmulateWheelButton"          "2"
    Option                "Emulate3Buttons"             "false"
    Option                "XAxisMapping"                "6 7"
    Option                "YAxisMapping"                "4 5"

It works fine except for one thing: pulling down on the trackpoint while scrolling causes it to scroll up. I would rather it scrolled down to follow my downwards movement. Does anyone know how I can reverse it?

Edit: Found out the problem. Apparently, Unity likes to fiddle with this setting...
