A bit of a feedback here:  This is the first kernel EVER that I've booted
that recognizes my kensington orbit trackball as a three-button mouse.  The
left button acts as the left button, and the right one acts as middle.  And
for anyone using XF68, there's an option that lets you chord to emulate the
third button:  In XF86Config, in the "Pointer" section, on a line by itself
say: ChordMiddle.  To be honest, I just found this option and haven't tried
it yet, but for anyone with a two-button mouse this is worth a try.
