Extra `mouse' button on a Thinkpad T21

I've been working with getting Debian running in all its glory on an
IBM Thinkpad T21, and am pretty pleased -- except for one tiny issue.

The T21 has a large button with a blue marking underneath the left-
and right-`mouse' buttons.  Under Windows, this is used as a scroll

I'd like to set this up as a middle mouse button, but I'm not sure
how.  I can't just remap it with xmodmap, since it's currently not
even being read by X (tested using xev).  In addition, none of the
mouse configurations in gpm seem to activate it.

Anyone have any ideas?
