I can see how it would, but that doesn't seem to relate to the problem.
I think the problem is more likely related to the ``ChordMiddle'' option.
The mouse doesn't seem to send an actual middle button signal, but rather
sends left+right simultaneously. With this option turned off, the middle
mouse button does nothing, with it turned on, the middle mouse button
acts like it is supposed to for a while, then it starts sending these
multiple press/release signals as long as the button is pressed.
Nothing seems to reset it except for dropping the X server, but doing
a manual chord (pressing left and right buttons simultaneously) seems
to generate a single middle button event.
At first guess, I'd say it was a bug in the SVGA server.
