I'm having exactly same problem. Once in a while mouse buttons stop
working, the pointer moves and keyboard still works. I'm also having
dual-screen configuration with Xinerama and two Radeon graphics cards.

I also noted another bug with might be related. I use synergy to share
my keyboard and mouse with a laptop which has also Ubuntu 8.10 as does
the synergy-server (with those two screens on xinerama). When I move my
mouse to the laptop and move it back to the synergy server screen the
mouse buttons won't work anymore, exactly like described above. And
there is two options to get the buttons to work:  a) restart X with
ctrl+alt+backspace  b) kill the synergy-client on laptop. What's the
most curious is that even if the mouse buttons stop working randomly
without synergy even running the option b helps (of course you have to
start synergy and move mouse to the laptop's screen in that case).
