Did you examine the Logitech software for the mouse? Or is it not installed? If you are using only USB Overdrive, then perhaps the usual suspect is to be blamed. Delete the preferences file for USB Overdrive and reset the preferences.

I am not particularly familiar with the Mac, so these would be real SWAGs:

1. Is it a wireless mouse?

No, it's a Logitech wired mouse, standard issue, nothing fancy.

And, if so, have you tried changing its batteries? I have seen occasional 
misbehavior with my wireless mouse when the batteries are low.

I agree, which is one reason why I prefer mouses with tails ;-)

2. Does the middle scroll wheel also have a push-button click capability (like mine 
does)? Or a "sideways" tilt click?


And, if so, is the /software driver set to do an insert when you "click" the 
center button?

No, I disabled this on purpose, in case of accidental use.

An accidental click (sometimes very soft and undetectable with some mice - or 
old ones) when scrolling is possible.

I agree, and your point about mouse wheel sideways click is of interest, as 
this is in fact the first mouse I've had that has that feature (causing 
unbounded joy in Excel). I checked, though, and 'wheel left' and 'wheel right' 
in USBOverdrive are mapped to scroll left and scroll right, universally, so I 
doubt if it's that.

I guess this is either a system bug or a very obscure one in FrameMaker 7 for 
Mac. Either way, I don't think I'm going to resolve it. It's especially 
embarrassing, as a client spotted some gibberish in a draft caused by this 
problem. It would have been picked up by later processes such as proofing, but 
it still caused a bit of a red face. As it only happens (when it does) when 
paging forward, it's all too easy to miss the accidental insertion of rubbish 
into the document. At least I can search for ']'s later and fish them out - it 
always inserts the ']'
