Negative. It works in the gtk2 client with middle click. Now middle 
doesn't do anything. Or does the sdl client handle clicking the wheel button
differently? (I have standard mouse with two buttons and scroll-wheel, which
in most programs emulates third button when clicked)

Negative. Again. Middle clicking in sdl client doesn't do anything. 
While in the
gtk2 client this works perfectly. In the sdl client I have to 
shift-click things to
obtain information on them...

Yes, as it would replace the Help-option in the gtk2 client. In the sdl 
client you
cannot go browsing the Civilopedia just for fun, because there is no 
link there...

Thank you for such a quick reply! :)
