Does xev recognise it?

Maybe you need to play with xmodmap (search xmodmap with / pointer,
*not* / mouse).  E.g. xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3"

Or... does gpmconfig recognise the mouse as a slightly different
model which gives the middle button by default (which is then
maybe/hopefully also known to X).
