Wondering if anyone's seen this issue where you're clicking and holding with a Logitech trackball and, although you're still holding the primary mouse button the OS (Windows in my case) acts as if you've released it.
It's quite inconvenient, particularly if you're trying to lasso select some files and drag and drop them etc.
I've seen this question and, while it may share some common components, it's neither the same mouse nor OS. Also given that the device in question is still under warranty I'd be loath to invalidate it by opening the device up.
The trackball is a M570, about 2.5 years old so it's possible that it's a function of age but I'd like to know definitively before I purchase a new/alternative model.
If I use Spy++ to monitor window messages then I can clearly see that's there's a series of mouse down/mouse up/mouse down messages like this:
<000001> 0001014E P WM_LBUTTONDOWN fwKeys:MK_LBUTTON xPos:1561 yPos:5 <000002> 0001014E P WM_LBUTTONUP fwKeys:0000 xPos:1394 yPos:801 <000003> 0001014E P WM_LBUTTONDOWN fwKeys:MK_LBUTTON xPos:1593 yPos:0 <000004> 0001014E P WM_LBUTTONUP fwKeys:0000 xPos:1593 yPos:0
Basically the button leaves go for a split second and then re-engages again. Smells like a hardware fault alright.
