Left-right scroll wheel direction reversed in Atom


My scroll-wheel (touch pad w two fingers) goes in the normal direction up/down but goes in the wrong direction left/right. You might ask what I think is normal and the simple answer is the way it acts in the chrome browser with something like gmail. This causes me to always go the wrong way and then have to reverse which is quite annoying.

I would think that it would act the same as in the chrome browser since it is built on V8. Anyone have any idea what is going on or how to fix it?
