I guess there really is a bug somewhere then, I
seemed to try set-prop as described, but I don't
get anything like drag lock on fedora rawhide:


I couldn't figure out how to use set-int-prop because
I need to pass two values (making button 8 a draglock for
button 1), and none of the docs mention
that variation. Do I just pass multiple pairs
of <bitsize> <int>, or is <bitsize> only specified once,
with multiple values like <bitsize> <int> <int>,
or does set-int-prop have no way to set multiple values?
