I have FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE and optical Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer, USB native, plugged to PS/2 port via it's own USB->PS/2 adaptor. When I scroll my mouse wheel up in X11 it acts like "scroll up + left button one/double-click". For example, in Opera, Firefox. In MS Windows mouse works correctly.

I am running the same mouse in the same way on the same release. Here is what is working for me:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "sysmouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

moused_enable="YES"             # don't use type "auto" with KVM
moused_type="ps/2 -l 2"         # -l 2 for scroll (fails in _flags)

I have changed settings as Pete advised. Both variants (old and new) are working (scrolling) but described effect remains. Why I think that scrolling up works as "scroll + left click": for example, in Opera scrolling up at the top of document (when real scroll is impossible) result in marking the word under cursor and appearing context menu for very short time.

I've been having the same problem since updating to Xorg 6.9.0 two months ago. Before that, this problem did not exist for me. Here are a couple examples of what I see with use:

1) I'm going through my inbox in Thunderbird and I start scrolling up using the wheel to see messages. In addition to going up the list, it's also selecting all the emails that my mouse pointer happens to touch when I move the wheel up. This isn't good because then it marks lots of messages as "read" when I really did not read them.

2) I'm in Firefox viewing a website. I take my mouse pointer and hover over a link or a bookmark on my bookmarks bar. I keep the mouse over it and roll the wheel up once. It selects that link or button and goes to it as if I had left clicked on it.

Unfortunately I have not found a solution, but this is my configuration that was working for months up until upgrading to Xorg 6.9.0 (and is what I still have now):

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
        Option "Buttons" "5"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

No flags for moused are in rc.conf. My mouse is a Microsoft Intellimouse Optical. Like yours, it is also hooked up through a USB to PS/2 adapter.
