Naive question here:  Does id 3 refer to the adb device?  The reason I
ask is that when I had the 2.2.0/1 kernel, 3-button detection wasn't
working properly in my setup.  At the time the answer was supposed to be

mousemode 3 4

However, in my setup I also had a joystick connected.  So in reality I
sometimes had to do mousemode 15 4 randomly.  I guess it was whichever
device got recognized first.

Anyway, my point is that if this is the device id, assuming id 3 may not
be the correct thing to do in general.

If it's not device id, just ignore me :-)
