sorry, can't help you with that one ...
what about other user interfaces - X in general - perhaps something
with root's .xinit !?
-> you might want to use 'xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3"' or (3 2 1 if
you're left-handed) to change this.

did you set up the necessary group "gdm"? In case you didn't, you've
gotta edit the /etc/groups file. Instead you can just specify any other
group for gdm to use by changing the group-option in your gdm.conf in
