I have in rc.conf:

and in XF86Config:
  Option          "Protocol"      "auto"
  Option          "Device"        "/dev/sysmouse"
  Option          "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5"

and the middle mouse button plus scrollwheel works like a charm.
However, some applications, such as netscape or xemacs or acrobat
reader need special treatment to activate the scrollwheel.

I still did not get the middle touch pad button(s) to work. Anyone
had more luck than me?

greets, t.
