Description of problem:

I use fvwm2 and also
xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"

to make the mouse left handed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
When running 

selecting "Dialog and Message Boxes"

opens a dialog box, but the buttons in that dialog box do not react to any mouse clicks, what is strange is that item selected the main gtk3-demo window changes when clicking on the dialog box...

No other widgets seem to have this problem.

gtk3-demo is just an example, the problem happens in all Gtk3+ applications.

gtk2-demo does NOT have this problem.

This setup has worked for 10+ years, no other toolkits have the same problem.
