 evdev decided that by default, all evdev users have a 3rd mouse button
 (true for most laptops, but not ours), and GNOME decided to implement an
 on/off switch for this emalation which hard-defaults to off, overriding X
 config. Not great. Commented on the GNOME bug, and fixed(changed gsettings
 default) in olpc-utils 075074cd.
