Thanks for the feedback. It's the mouse driver update that is causing
me the problem. I'm running F9 under VMWare Workstation. The
xorg-drv-vmmouse package was also updated at the same time. I did a
poor job of debugging the mouse driver which I initially suspected as
the cause of the problem. I reverted from
xorg-drv-vmmouse-12.6.1-1.fc9 to xorg-drv-vmmouse-12.5.0-1.fc9 and
restarted gnome desktop but that didn't resolve the change to the
mouse clicks. Reverting to the previous version of gnome-panel seemed
to fix the problem. Upgrading xorg-drv-vmmouse to the latest brought
the problem right back. Now, I have to go to bugzilla and ammend my
report!
