Ok, the problem is the browser, or the hardware driver for the mouse  
etc, is changing the button pressed (say 2) into
button 1 press with modifier key. That is passed to me by the  
browser, then we pass that to the VM, where it decides which
button was pressed based on the modifier keys. MMm perhaps another  
set of tables is needed in the VM to handle browser mis-mapping.    
Does this mouse come with software? If so how is it configured?

Let me ask if you run the VM standalone do the buttons work as expected?

I'm fairly sure the browser gets the cmd-key menu shortcuts before  
the browser does, in fact I'll bet cmd-p is never passed
on to the plugin because the browser menu logic has eaten it for "print"

Let me add the parms so you can specify them, then let whomever sort  
out what they should be.

I'll post a new vm,plugin pair later tonight
