Hey I have an idea... lets build an input device which includes a
button that depresses AND scrolls... and do so in a way that makes it
difficult for users to use the button press functionality.. so they
then complain when software developers attempt to utilize that action
in a useful way. If i was a conspiracy theorist I'd claim your
hardware manufacturer was deliberately trying to cripple the
functionality of the middle-click button. Oh wait I am a conspiracy
theorist and they are deliberately trying to cripple the functionality
of the middle-click button.  Explain the me the point of including the
middle-click functionality in an input device and making it
delibrately difficult to use. Sounds like pathetically poor hardware
design to me.
