My impression is that Andrew was talking about chording buttons 1 & 2  
to emulate button 3, to avoid accidental scrolling when trying to  
click button 3 which is also the scroll wheel on a scroll wheel mouse.

I'm not a KDE user, but I expect there's something about "Chording" or  
"Emulate 3 button mouse" in there somewhere.
