I am writing this on a SuSE 8.2 Box, kernel 2.4.20 (i.e. older Linux), 
using a Kensington optical mouse w/ 3 buttons (w/ a USB-to-PS/2 
adapter), the middle one both button & roller. I hot-swapped it a few 
months ago when the old one croaked & was off to the races, not a hint 
of problems since. YMMV & all that.
