Lately my optical mouse has been misbehaving. Clicks seem to be auto-repeated so that one click behaves like two or three. At first I thought it was just a dirty mouse, so I cleaned it carefully as described in a HOWTO that I googled. That didn't solve the problem.
Then I noticed that this doesn't seem to occur in Debian, only in Crux. This now makes me think it's X that is causing the problem, not my mouse. On Debian Wheezy I have xorg-server 1.7.7 but it's 1.10.0 on Crux 2.7. Has anyone else had this problem with a recent xorg?
In desktop environments like gnome you can configure the mouse ad lib but I am using a simple window manager ( openbox). The xset utility lets you change the acceleration of your mouse but not the click parameters. So how do I get my mouse to calm down?
First thing to try is another mouse, borrow one, buy a cheap one or a spare and see if it behaves the same :)

Well, the mouse section of mine looks like this:

As you can see, I'm still using the old xf86 drivers. Perhaps I should switch to evdev.
