This patch restored "single tap" = "left button click" functionality on
my AVERATEC 3150H. However, "double tap and drag" = "hold left button
and move the mouse" is still missing. It is working with psm.c 1.70.

Also, I have (possibly subjective) feeling that something happened with
the resolution -- if with psm.c 1.70 I ca successfully  tap into "clear
transaction" box in gnucash (relatively small target on the relatively
busy screen) about 9 times out of 10, with 1.71 + your patch it is about
50/50. Please, note I am not proposing to discuss shortcomings of the
user interface in gnucash, but merely use it as my private test of mouse

I will have to go do some paid work now, but I can test patches or
produce debug output later tonight if necessary.
