I noticed something similar with on my ThinkPad when using the track point device. I enable the "EmulateWheelButton" option to allow scrolling by holding down the middle button, and moving the pointer up/down to scroll. I believe that this is something new in the version of xorg that comes with SuSE 10. Check for config file for the "EmulateWheel" and "EmulateWheelButton" options.
But I don't want to emulate a wheel button, I've got a wheel button. I simply want my middle button to work, which it does not. Or maybe I'm confused by the option names.
I have several mouse drivers setup in my xorg.conf file. The first one /dev/input/mouse0 is always the built-in track point device, and the other is for my USB scroll mouse. I CAN use my middle button on my external USB mouse; but to make this work I had to setup separate InputDevice sections.
Hmm, well I wouldn't expect things to have changed the device, but I guess I could look at that. Basically, I have a logitech wireless keyboard/mouse setup that communicate to a bluetooth usb device.
Hopefully this is helpful or not. If you do have a setup similar to mine, I have a couple more "pointers" that may be useful. (Sorry, for the bad pun).
Well, I appreciate your efforts, but I don't know that the above will help. I'll take a look at the docs for the two options you mentioned above.
