map mouse button 4 or 5 to button 2?

Is it possible to have either button 4 or 5 (usually the forward/back
buttons) send a 'button 2' signal (ie paste) to cygwin applications?
The reasons for this are (1) since button 2 is on the wheel, pressing
this button sometimes also accidentally sends a scroll signal making for
sloppy paste operations and (2) I just upgraded my mouse, and in the
new standard configuration, Windows intercepts button 2 and makes it a
'switch applications' signal. I need button 2 for Cygwin paste
operations, so I'm anxious to restore this functionality to my cygwin.
My new mouse/keyboard setup is MS Wireless Optical Desktop Elite (which
includes a Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0), and I'm running .... hm,
not sure how to check my Cygwin version, it's probably ~4 months old
.... on WinXP.
Thanks for the help,
