The only thing I ever use my mouse (actually, trackball) for in bash is scrolling up/down. When I'm at a command line, I think in old school, text only, CLI only mode and basically only use the keyboard. But, with my curiosity piqued, I just tried pushing down on my scroll wheel, and it pasted in the last thing I had copied to the clipboard. What is it that you want yours to do? The trackball I just tried this on is a Logitech wireless Trackman; I can try it later with my Logitech wired Trackmans, too.

I haven't used a straight 3 button mouse since HP-UX.
I haven't used a mouse since the first trackball became available! I'm no good whatsoever with a mouse. I'm just too used to the ease of trackballs; mine all have the thumb-operated ball, which I love. I tried a middle ball once, but disliked it almost as much as I dislike mice.

On the crashing machine, fsck has been run, yeah?
From the problems sf is describing, I don't know if that's possible. It sounds like a graphics card issue or perhaps bad RAM. I don't think it's staying up long enough--and with a readable enough screen--to do anything. I hope we'll get updates.
