Have the same problem using FC2 test1 and fully up2date.

Trying to change the mouse button mapping in KDE control center to
left handed gives me a mouse that acts as a mouse with 2 right mouse

This feature shows it self om the KDE start menu and the icons on the
desktop. The mouse buttons work fine on a application window.

I have stopped and restarted KDE and X, but no luck there.

This same problem also was in one of the FC1 test releases.

The mouse is a Logitech Cordless MouseMan (PS2) on a Asus P4B-E. It
works fine in FC1 and RH9.

There is a closed messages (20500, 68623) about this issue

The KDE issue is unrelated because this component is about gnome
control center.
