That would seem to be the problem. Still have not found 
the remedy, unfortunately. Perhaps there is something 
else involved when this latest version of X is being 
used? The default 50 milliseconds was present in XF86Config 
but not in XF86Config-4. An examination of the console 
running X shows the following lines: 

(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "PS/2"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(==) Mouse0: Buttons: 3
(**) Mouse0: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(**) Mouse0: ZAxisMapping: buttons 4 and 5

*** /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 looks like this:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Mouse0"
        # Modified by mouseconfig
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/mouse"
        Option          "Protocol"              "PS/2"
        Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "yes"
        Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"

*** /etc/X11/XF86Config looks like this: 

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

    Emulate3Timeout    50
