Support for more than five mouse buttons in Sawfish is broken
I do not have such a mouse, just two buttons and a wheel, which produces 2, 4 & 5!  The shopping key on my logitech keyboard surprisingly produces a mouse8 event, but I don't use it.
and apparently interferes with multi-layout xkb configurations.  See
and subsequent discussion.
This doesn't really say much, but here too the reason might also be a bogus mouse6 modifier as I am seeing it.  Maybe my discussion in sheds some light as to AltGr not working in a standard multi-group setup.
Sawfish needs to be fixed to support extra mouse buttons without
messing with the modifier state (buttons after 5 do not have modifier
bits, Sawfish just pretends they do).
If group locking is represented as a modifier bit which coincides with the one used to represent mouse6, that would seem to be the cause.  But that would make sawfish useless to all users of multi-keyboard setups (physically or only logically mapped on the same one) so there should be tons of complaints, or don't you have users from far eastern and south eastern Europe?
