Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Window Maker and TWM, same result, as root or normal user, trackpad or USB mouse. xorg.conf has not been changed. I'm going to run the setup program and see if that'll fix whatever has been broken. Very strange.
Can't say that ever come across that problem yet, but I've been using flux and kde. Sounds like something is taking away focus and stopping mouse clicks. I did had some problems using xv to set background a long time back. Might also worth be looking at what programs are auto-starting. Maybe turn off bg image too.
Well, I went through the setup program, it didn't fix the problem. What's odd is that once a menu is opened from the keyboard then the menu items can be controlled by the mouse. Aah, just discovered something else. In Firefox I can control the address bar's drop-down menu. But that's all. I wonder if the upgrade left out some xorg packages.
I get the Window Maker menus using the center and right buttons of both the mouse and trackpad but not the context menus in Firefox and Thunderbird. I can also click the toolbar icons, it's just the top menu items (File, Edit, etc.) that are not responding. Could it be some kind of crazy permissions issue? Oh, and I did reinstall everything, no luck.
