Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67017
"Emulate 3 buttons" toggle should be grayed-out if selected mouse is already 3-button

Summary says it all. Just doesn't make sense to allow someone to turn on
"Emulate 3 buttons" when they've selected "Generic 3-button PS/2 mouse" or whatever
Not time now, but will look into this change for a future release.
This begs the question: why show the choice at all? Shouldn't it always be on
for two button mice and off for three button ones?
After thinking about this I'm leaving it as is. If you had a laptop with a 2
button builtin mouse, but plugged into a docking station with a 3 button button,
you'd want to be able to turn on emulation. Depending on the order the 2 mice
were detected you may not have that option.
