I'd say the X52 then has exactly this problem. One bit is always on,
since it has a mode-switch (doesn't do anything without the
windows-software) which always has a bit set.
Would be nice if fgjs could check for a change, not a bit. I'm quite
sure, the X52 is not the only joystick out there that has this
Thanks for the hint.
