Description of problem:
The "emulate three buttons" mouse option doesn't work as desired with
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.0-test8 and kernel-2.6.0-test8
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install aranj's 2.6.0 kernel RPM
2. Reboot into kernel 2.6.0
4. Select some text
5. Try pasting the text with both left and right mouse buttons at the
Actual Results: It pastes the text and ALSO brings up the context
menu for the right mouse button.
Expected Results: Just paste the text.

desired. The kernel rpm exhibits the same behavior under RH 9 and on
two different machines.

to fix the problem

Fixed in the current kernel ?
Yes I believe this is fixed, you can mark it closed.
