I've never had a problem with my T61. I have the touchpad disabled via the 
BIOS, but the trackpoint and buttons work just fine. Even when I plug in a usb 
mouse, the trackpoint and buttons are still 100% operational. Here is my mouse 
section of xorg.conf:

        Section "InputDevice"
                Identifier      "Mouse1"
                Driver          "mouse"
                Option          "Protocol"      "wsmouse"
                Option          "Device"        "/dev/wsmouse"
                Option          "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5"           # for usb mouse

        # in Section "ServerLayout"
                InputDevice     "Mouse1"        "CorePointer"
