If was part of one of the patent infringement suits that Apple won against samsung. The case was directly against samsung though, not android, so the feature only had to be removed from samsung phones.

EL29s touchwiz launcher doesn't have wallpaper scrolling either. This is not necessarily a new touchwiz thing.

The reason it stretches in the ICS launcher is probably because it's built to scroll wallpapers, however, the touchwiz chooser selects 480x800 wallpapers for the home screen. So the launcher is trying to compensate.

if it was patent infringement, then why are other devices still scrolling?
Well, I know samsung and apple have been battling it out over patents, but what makes samsung's scrolling a patent infringement when other android making companies are doing it like htc, lg, etc? I really hope they bring it back because no scrolling wallpaper sucks !

I'm using the default ICS launcher that is in our stock roms, because I hate the TW launcher and all TW stuff for that fact, and my wallpaper is not scrolling.

Unfortunately switching launchers doesn't completely rid yourself of interacting with TouchWiz apps. Pull the Google gallery out of the latest gapps package and push it to system/app. Then use the new gallery to set your wallpaper. Should help a little. I use the TouchWiz launcher when I'm on TouchWiz and Nova when I'm on AOSP. On AOSP I have scrolling wallpaper and on TouchWiz I don't. Not sure if using the Google gallery will give you scrolling in the stock ICS launcher but it should at least give you the proper sizing so it looks right.

Right, which leaves me to believe its been somehow disabled BUT the ics launcher is still scaling images as if it were scrolling (which explains the enlarged images)

I think he's being sarcastic. Everyone is making wallpaper scrolling out to be such a huge deal when it's really not...
