Ya gotta watch that scroll wheel. Depending on your set up you can actually be changing your focal length instead of dollying, which is why, after a bit of in and out and moving around (no really, I'm talking about C4D here) you'll find that your camera is now crazy wide and everything is distorting and clipping or your lens is now so long that it takes a lot of scrolling just to move a little ways in.

I finally broke down one year and picked up a Connexion Space mouse. I don't use it every day but when I need a walk through it's really nice.
We also built a DIDO that mimics the pan, tilt and ped cranks of a real fluid head and also has a dolly crank. When a shot isn't looking right we'll often get the DP in to move the camera for the shot and they love the controls. Then the shot has the same feel since its the same guy behind the "camera". But once they use that dolly crank, they leave wanting more control over the guys who push the dolly in and out.
