ADL: mouse issue

I have been running ADT/autodock on 64-bit Linux box for a while
with no problems. I just installed MGLTools 1.5.1 on an 8-core Mac Pro
running OS X 10.5.2 and am having weird mouse issues. The mouse is a
Logitech marble mouse with 4 buttons (left, right, mini-left, and mini-
right) and a trackball. I am unable to rotate the molecule in ADT or
PMV- the right button moves the molecule in the X-Y direction, the
mini-left zooms out, the mini-right zooms in, but the left button does
nothing except make a yellow square that is visible only when the
button is pushed. Trying the left button with the shift, control,
option, or command button pushed doesn't make any difference, nor does
any combination of those buttons. Also using the "bind action to mouse
button" widget from the Preferences to bind button 1 to "rotation"
doesn't do anything.
The mouse works fine for all other applications, including PyMol and
UCSF Chimera (which also runs under X11) for rotating the image with
the left button, so I am not sure what is going on here.
On the Linux box, I have a 3 button Dell mouse, and the center button/
scroll wheel is the one that rotates molecules in the viewer when
Any assistance would be of help.
