I second this, I emailed grantham about it, and he must be busy, but I really
need those buttons and they don't seem to work..  You should see how loaded my
Button1 is under twm right now...  ;-)

I have a mac SE/30 with the std keyboard that came with it, not extended, is 
this my problem?

btw-- I love this!  I want to help.  What is out there for scrolling the root
window around on the SE/30 mini screen?  Have us SE/30 people been porting a
virtual window manager, or what?  I was thinking about developing an app to 
run as a window manager that would run like macpaint, where if you held the 
option key down, your cursor would turn into a hand and you could move around
a more nominal space ???  Thoughts?
