Maybe so, but changing drivers corrected the problem, and no software
was ever changed.  For those interested, here is the config for the
Marble Mouse, where the middle-click is a left-and-right chord, and the
left scroll button, held down allows scrolling with the ball.

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
	Option		"Protocol"		"Auto"
	Option    "Buttons" "4"
  Option    "EmulateWheel" "true"
  Option    "EmulateWheelButton" "8"
