2 mice

I got a USB I-Pen Pro (it's a usb mouse that is shaped like a pen, with
the left mouse button being the pen tip). I configured XF86Config to
use 2 mice. The only thing that I can think of with my configuration
here is that maybe the protocol isn't IMPS/2, which is what I am using.

Anyway, I started X, which came up. My dockapps never loaded (windowmaker), and I
have a small titlebar near the middle of the screen that says "windows"
or maybe it was just "window". It looked kind of like a titlebar for a
drop down menu. I was able to move the pointer with both my mouse and
the I-Pen, but I could not click on anything with either mouse. I
eventually had to kill X and revert back to my old XF86Config file.

I posted a similar message to the windowmaker mailing list, because of the dockapps not
loading and the strange titlebar on screen, I dont know whether to think this is a problem with windowmaker or with they way I have xorg set up. If anyone can offer any
advice, please reply.
