So, I encountered a very strange problem, which I thought was first connect to my webbrowser, but now I assume it's X.

So whenever I want to open a page in a new tab (while browsing) I press the scrollwheel down.

Funny thing is, that I have such a Microsoft Mouse [1] with a 4-waa scrolling wheel.

And whenever I move the wheel to the right (could also work with moving to the left, not yet tested), and then click it down (no matter which application I'm in), GNOME quits and I'm confronted with GDM (so the same as when restarting X while in a session).

Has anyone encountered similiar problems, or could help me to track this down further?

Thanks in advance.

This task depends upon

Try upgrading to xf86-input-mouse 1.3.0, assuming you're not using evdev for mouse input.

Ok, I'll build and try for myself, but I couldn't find it in the repos yes.

Will report on whether it fixed the issue.

Ok, updating the driver didn't help.

It's even worse now.

I just have to move the wheel to the side and *boom*, no more clicking required :(

Tried that, but sadly that issue is still valid :(

(Trying means moving the wheel twice and getting two X restarts...)
