I am using FreeBSD 10.2 amd64 with gnome3 as desktop.

I am experiencing a problem which is quite irksome when it happens. A 
single click of my mouse (Logitech, USB) sometimes gets interpreted as a 
double-click (or even sometimes as 2 single clicks). I have tried 
various things but the problem does not go away :

1) tried different click speeds in Gnome settings
2) took the mouse out from the hub and connected it to a motherboard port
3) booted into Windows XP to see if the problem occurs there too. It 

On FreeBSD, the problem continues to happen randomly, about once for 
every 10 mouse clicks. Would anyone have any idea about what the problem 
might be ? Is this a problem with the mouse hardware or with X or with 
FreeBSD kernel code ?

Thanks for any help
