I want to disable the XF86Search feature in my system. I will try anything.
One of my mouse buttons, when pressed, triggers this XF86Search no matter what I disable or change. (This feature opens up my browser and goes to a search page.) Strangely the mouse button is being interpreted as a key, not a mouse-button press.
How do I disable this feature?
I am running KDE 4.3.5 with Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic (Kubuntu). Though I use BTNX to configure my mouse buttons, this feature has absolutely nothing to do with that. I have tested by disabling BTNX completely and clicking this special button on my mouse still loads a search page.
Here is the xev command output:

My mouse is a Logitech Revolution MX. It has 5 buttons and 2 scroll wheels. 1 of these scroll wheels has 3 clickable options.
EDIT/UPDATE: It seems I was mistaken. The problem is not universal, just limited to KDE. Unfortunately I cannot change that thread property.
