Status in “sugar” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed

I installed sugar-platform version 0.86 in ubuntu 9.10, during login I changed the session to sugar and was able to use the various activities. But after logging out and returning to the default gnome session the mouse malfunctioned. Both the Right click and the left click don't work as expected. I manage to get the desired behavior from the mouse only after pressing the "Ctrl" key on the keyboard.
I managed to get a workaround this problem by deleting the ".gconf" folder in my homes. But I face this same problem again when I switch to gnome from sugar.
