This would be much better.

However, as far as I know it is not possible to distinguish a "real"
button click from a PTS one.
The PTS button is determined by 3 masks (button 1, 2, 3). I believe
that if more than one mask is set, PTS will still only generate one
click, not two simultaneous ones.

Tom
