Hi Matthias,

The way i work arround this is by having an xmessage with three buttons.
if i press button 1 xmodmap wil map the click to button 1 
if i press button 2 xmodmap wil map the click to button 2 for a while
if i press button 3 xmodmap wil map the click to button 3 for a while
(right click)

It is not perfect, but it suits my needs. ( using all mouse functions in
vnc for example )

Kind regards,
