No, this is with moused.  It still needs to initialize the mouse.

Yes, been through all of that and more.  Nothing worked.

In the meantime I've connected it up anyway as a 3 button mouse and
decided I really don't like it; the buttons are far too heavy in their
action, and it's difficult to move it sideways without pressing one of
the side buttons.  So this is not much of an issue any more.

Can anybody recommend a good mouse?  My criteria are:

- Middle button easy to use.  The current crop of mice has the middle
  button integrated with the roller, and that makes the middle button
  either heavy or easy to confuse with the roller.
- Preferably cordless.  Cord mice tend to wander a little when you let
  go of them, and that's a real nuisance on a high-resolution display.
