Up to now, I was using the <Alt> key with Button 1 to drag windows around, but now I don't seem to need to use the <Alt> key. In fact, all mouse buttons are not behaving correctly, as if I have <Alt> permanently pressed (nothing wrong with the keyboard). I've been using Compiz. Now I've disabled it, the mouse buttons seem to be behaving but I still can't use the <Alt> key to drag windows around, and I've also noticed <Alt>Tab no longer responds.

Any ideas?

Ah! Don't know how it happened, but...

/apps/metacity/general/mouse_button_modifier

...was blank. I set it to <Alt> and all is ok. Weird!
