Thanks Aaron, it works now with your help.

So maybe this bug should be renamed 
"xmodmap could not be used for X left-handed mouse"?
Or since xmodmap is considered deprecated, maybe this bug could closed
as invalid or something like that?

Anyway I will suggest the precisions of
/usr/share/doc/xserver-xfree86/NEWS.Debian.gz to be added in the X FAQ.

Thanks again and best regards,
