Ok, the pad now works delightfully, this is great.

Unfortunately neither the real buttons nor the synthetic button work at
all for me, making it useless. What am I doing wrong? First, the
synthetic button goes off at random without any tapping (not enough
debouncing?). Second, no matter what kind of tap I use, I can't seem
to induce a click reliably. Third, the real buttons don't seem to have
any effect, even if I remove the -g1 flag.

All this is equally true in or out of X-windows.

What I'd like for now is just to get the real buttons to work, the
synthetic buttons can wait.

I'm using gpm 1.1 (from Slackware 3.1 but RedHat 4.1 has the identical
gpm binary). Kernel is 2.0.27.
