Might it be the case that Xorg is detecting your mouse twice? Have a
look through /var/log/Xorg.0.log for lines containing "XINPUT:". You
should find at least one that states "Adding input device "Your Mouse"
(type: MOUSE)". If there are two (or more) that may be the cause of your
problem; Xorg sees two mice and sees them both clicking.

To fix that, you probably need to tell Xorg not to auto-add devices and
then you'll need to manually configure your device.
