suggestions/guesses (since a) I'm typing this at a laptop sans mouse
b) mouse works fine on my WS with OI 148, guess is all I can do):
- I would look more closely into the (WW) you show last
- use xev to find out what X thinks about your mouse button
- is someone/thing calling xmodmap during your session startup?
