Problems about swapping mouse buttons

xinput (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I use the following script to swap right-click and middle-click buttons:

  # swap middle and right button
  MY_MOUSE_ID=$(xinput list | grep "Mouse" | sed -r 's/.*id=([0-9]+).*/\1/')
  xinput --set-button-map ${MY_MOUSE_ID} 1 3 2

It can work, but after a while (about 30min-1h), the buttons automatically swap back so I have to execute the commands again...

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 (with xinput 1.6.0-1). It's a USB optical mouse.
