Currently, when selecting anything from a panel dropdown, focus stays in the dropdown. If you have "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" enabled, and are expecting to zoom, you may be surprised when you instead change the dropdown options quickly (sometimes adding many history entries for blend modes).

There should be a Preferences option to either:
- disable the scroll wheel in dropdown lists,
- prevent focus from remaining in the dropdown, and/or
- allow the scroll wheel in dropdowns only when your pointer is hovering over it.

(This should be an option and not a change, because it is poor design etiquette to change a behavior that others might already be accustomed to.)
