No, I ain't using feel.GNOME, I am using my own feel file, however, this one
has also disable button 1 and 3 for the root window, just verified it. And it
worked for earlier versions.
Perhaps someone could verify it with another gnome version, mine is 1.0.39
(at least that is what gnome session says). It should be the one delivered
with redhat 6.1, however upgrading to redhat 6.1 was a pain in .... oh well,
I did do a manual upgrade, so something could be wrong there. However, no
problems found so far....
