Trackball explorer buttons not being recognized..


I just upgraded from slack 11 to slack 12 and the two right buttons on my trackball are mo longer working. I ran xev and neither right button is getting recognized.

Current mouse setup

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" # Explorer PS/2
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "7"
# Option "ChordMiddle"
EndSection



Original setup - worked in slack 11

Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2" # Explorer PS/2
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ChordMiddle"
EndSection

Was there a change that I am not aware of.
