I can set my mouse to be left-handed successfully in control-center-2.26.0-6.fc11.x86_64.  Does an update fix the problem for you?

To test, I am hitting the "Close" button in the gnome-mouse-preferences window and clicking on a desktop icon with the left mouse button and seeing a context menu.

If you are still experiencing the problem, what make and model of mouse do you have?  Including the output of "lsusb" might help diagnose the problem.  Do "yum install usbutils" to install this program, if you need it.  You might also check /var/log/messages and ~/.xsession-errors to see if anything helpful is printed there.
