[Xbindkeys-devel] need modifiers to work alongside bindkey setting

I have been battling with my multibutton mouse for a while and have finally come close to getting what I need.

I have installed xbindkeys and xvkbd and have successfully bound my mouse buttons to keyboard actions. Below is an example

"xvkbd  -xsendevent -text "\[Left]""
      m:0x0 + b:9

This binds my button 9 to the left arrow. This works great, however when I press Alt and mouse button 9, I do not get the same affect as Alt + left arrow. It basically does not change mouse button 9 to left arrow because I have the Alt button pressed. Do I have to make a separate keybinding for all of my modifications of left arrow?

In my application I use all combinations of Shift, Ctrl, Meta with left arrow to do different things.

Thanks for the help
