#161 Middle mouse button acts like left button

Interface (96)

I have a three-button USB mouse (actually a trackball)
and I want to use the middle mouse button on the remote
machine. But CotVNC seems to pass middle-button clicks
through to the other side as left-button clicks.

For example, in an xterm window that's displayed on the
remote host, when I click the middle button it starts a
new selection instead of pasting the current selection
like it's supposed to.

Middle-button emulation works fine, of course, but I'd
rather use my real middle button!

    Funny, for me, the middle button is totally ignored. [I have a Kensington Optical
    Elite mouse - 4 buttons + clicking scroll wheel]

    I have no problem with the middle button of my USB mouse
    (Logitech Mouseman Traveler optical mouse) under Mac OS X
    10.4.3. This is strange...
