XF86 4.0 apparently has lifted that limitation. I have 6 buttons working

a lot with configuration, but this works nicely for me:

Mouse 6         R       A       PopUp "Window"

Do you have any nice droplets of what else might be seen in the next edition? I'm getting quite curious, and the CVS server didn't work when I tried it. :(
