Subject: Re: tmux mouse not working on one of my machines
So when you split the window and click on a pane nothing happens?
Can you kill run "tmux -Ltest -vvvvv" then do C-b : set -g
mouse-select-pane, split the window once, click a few times to reproduce
the problem, and send me the tmux-server-* log file?
libevent 1.1 is way way too old for tmux or anything else so it might be
worth trying a later version.
