This is probably down to the mousewheel changing the workspaces when 
moved on the desktop. You can disable this by going into the Xfce 
settings manager (Main menu>Settings>Settings manager), clicking on 
section 'Window Manager Tweaks', clicking the 'Workspaces' tab, and 
unticking the box that says 'Use the mouse wheel on the desktop to 
switch workspaces'. I've disabled this on my system because it is rather 
annoying and oversensitive.
