Weird. I run 2 FC2 boxes, one at work, one at home. The work box has
the problem, even when I run it in an aterm. The command runs, nut
nothing is changed in the mouse setting. The homebox does it allright.

I allways start in level 3, on both boxes. Both had rh7.3 =-new

the same shop and run about the same environment (fvwm2 with just
enough gnome stuff installed to run thinds like gqview etc.). That
should make them pretty much the same.

One difference though, the machine at work has monitor/mouse/kb
switch, I use an fc2 + a w2k box. Tomorrow i'll try to connect the
mouse directly to the box, see if that makes any difference.
