Right click event occasionally fires twice

Bug Description

Occasionally (around one in seven times) when I right click, two right clicks are registered.

This is especially chaotic when I do things like right click to open a context menu and the second fake click triggers the first menu item. Or when I'm trying to relieve stress by playing Simon Tatham's wonderful netwalk clone, Net, and the network pipe spins around twice when I only wanted it to spin once.

Okay. These are fairly minor issues but it's slowly grinding me down. And they could be a symptom of another, far worse issue that hasn't shown itself yet.

Things I have checked:
 - My finger: Well I was told on the forums it could be me. It's not. Let us move on.
 - Hardware: I've checked the mouse and I've changed to another mouse. Both mice are USB but I don't have a PS/2 mouse port on this motherboard. I've also used both mice (about two hours ago, to test) on a Windows computer. The mice are fine.
 - Double-click timeout: To test, I set it to its lowest (where it's very hard to double click when you actually want to) and the accidental double-right-clicks were still getting through!
 - xev: When the double-right-clicks occur, I see two full right click cycles with very, very close timecodes (14693245 vs 14693276 = 21ms(?) delay)

I'm not sure what else I should test. Please suggest.

I'm on 9.10 (all updates) and here's the forum post that proceeded this bug report: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1234826

"Found 16 mouse buttons" is a little suspicious...

This bug report was filed against an old version of Ubuntu.
Can you confirm whether this is still an issue in natty?

If you don't mind, it would be very helpful if you could update the bug
report in launchpad to 'Fix Released' if it is no longer an issue for
you, or if it is still occurring under natty, please tag the bug 'natty'
so it's easier for us to track.
