Mouse buttons not inverted on initial login

Bug Description

I am experiencing a bug where on first login to an Ubuntu/Unity session (12.04), my mouse buttons are not inverted (left-handed). The configuration does correctly list them as inverted, but they don't behave that way. If I log out and login again, they behave correctly, as per the configuration. It worked correctly for the longest time and only recently (a few weeks ago) started misbehaving.

On some occasions, on initial startup, the mouse buttons do no respond at all. Ctrl-alt-del to logout is necessary.

I have not experienced this bug anymore in the past week. It seems some update fixed it.
