It has never worked as far as I know. The middle button on the mouse
reports as device 0 which the input layer is not expecting. I gave up
trying to get it to work.

This makes the back button near your thumb work as the middle button:
/usr/bin/xinput set-button-map "Logitech MX Revolution Mouse" 1 2 3 4 5 6 2 2

I have it in .bashrc but it really should be in a udev script. The
mouse occasionally disconnects/reconnect. In udev the command would
get automatically reapplied.

BTW, it you plug the mouse in under Windows and program the middle
button to behave like a middle button, it will work until you forget
to charge the mouse. Then you have to put it back on Windows and
reprogram the button.
