Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I am running Kubuntu 11.10 on a Toshiba Satellite A660 notebook. I plugged in my Logitech M305 USB mouse and I'm getting some really bizarre bugs happening.

I can't move between tabs in Chromium at all, when I click on a tab it just flashes for a second but stays on the original tab.

I'm using Smooth Tasks as my task manager and I can't move between minimized programs at all, it just freaks out and then stabilizes on where ever I was before.

Right-click menus are glitchy on the taskbar and window bars, when I click the menu flickers and disappears.

When I unplug my mouse everything works fine. I would really like to use my mouse, but I have no idea where to even begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here are some specs:
KDE: 4.7.3
GRUB: 0.97-29ubuntu64 GRand Unified Bootloader (Legacy version)
CPU: 64-bit, dual core, intel, class: core i3, 2.4GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 310M
HD: 320GB (5400rpm)
Optical Drive: One internal DVD Super Multi Burner

Okay I fixed it. First things is, I realized that the scroll wheel was stuck down and the mapping was messed up. Clicking on the scroll wheel and left-clicking were reversed. This is what I did to fix the mapping problem.

I ran
$ xinput list
⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                id=12   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                     id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech USB Receiver                     id=14   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                         id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard               id=5    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=6    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                 id=7    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Video Bus                                 id=8    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                              id=9    [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ CNF9055                                   id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard              id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
to identify my mouse.

So, I'm still not sure why there are two Logitech USB receivers (id=13 and id=14), but I ran
$ xinput get-button-map 13
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 89 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
$ xinput get-button-map 14
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
and I liked the look of 14 better so I went with that.

Since the first two numbers are left click and scroll wheel click respectively I then ran
$ xinput set-button-map 14 2 1 3 4 5 6 7
to remap the buttons.
