I was wrong before, you don't have to use the device file but indeed
the bluetooth device name (hci0 in my case). I don't have a scrolling
wheel but I'll just document what I did, so someone who has can help
you out. I pressed the connect button on the mouse and did a

#hcitool scan

got the MAC address of the mouse and connected with

#hidd -connect=$MAC

Then I installed the latest hcidump and did

#hcidump -i hci0 -X > test_mouse

moved the mouse around a little and got the attached result.

Someone try it with a scrolling wheel then.
