Hmmm... the joys of no documentation....

Can you
compile it
boot into a 2.4 kernel
Disable gpm and get out of X
run mouseplay capturing the output
e.g. mouseplay | tee /tmp/m.out
perform various mouse action, particularly the buttons
annotate /tmp/m.out to tell me what you did when,
send m.out to me.
