You are right xt-mouse does not work correctly with cvs emacs.  I now remember
that i have send a mail regarding this to emacs-devel but got no answer.
Seems only few people need this :) and i have had no time so far to take a
closer look and find what is wrong.  I think the way mouse event are used was
changed and xt-mouse "just" needs to be adapted..

Well, right now all i can say is that i'm pretty sure i used xt-mouse with gpm
on the console and it worked..
