Though this question might look like a one man's issue, link to such a utility could be useful to many others.

I have a Microsoft Optical mouse which occasionally behaves weird. It takes double clicks for a single click, opens a single file twice or thrice and so on. I work on Ubuntu operating system and I am not aware of any tool/website which can let me test my mouse. I am unsure if the same behavior can be seen on a Windows PC. Prior to taking it for a warranty replacement I wish to test it and make sure.

Sounds like the button is wearing out. My current mouse is doing the same. – Bob Jul 14 '12 at 15:16

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but in X11 you can use xev to receive events and output them to console, might help somewhat in your debugging efforts.

It is also possibly available under cygwin in Windows - haven't tested it though
