This was a bug. The code for detecting the mouse button count was added
lately to support mice with > 3 buttons. But mice with < 3 buttons were
not handled correctly.
I've changed this:
XWin always assumes the mouse has 3 buttons (Left, Middle, Right) and
the scroll wheel. This sums up to 5 mouse buttons for XWin (4 and 5 are
wheel up and wheel down). Any additional mouse button is added as button
6, 7, 8 and so on.
I'll make a release next week
