It must be something along these lines (note that xterm also does not
get motion events, which makes more sense), but in what sense is xterm
not listening to button presses? Obviously, it reacts to the mouse
buttons, so I presume it asks to receive these events. Or is it
listening in some non-standard way? I'm guessing that something about
the way it sets up its event filter is confusing xev, but I have no idea
