A trackpad caveat

I've discovered a small caveat to the technique for OSX-like trackpad behavior that I posted about the other week. I probably should have anticipated this - it seems fairly obvious in hindsight, but didn't seem so at the time.

It turns out that X-Mouse runs in a different user context than the Window UAC dialog. Who knew, huh? The upshot is that any button that's been configured with X-Mouse will revert to its default behavior in the UAC. In other words, you have to click the system-default "left button" to make the dialog work.

Not actually a huge deal, since your X-Mouse config comes back once the elevated process has been launched, but a bit weird.
