thanks for the input. well the problem was (I think I just solved that
issue) that I could only do mouse interaction at random. It did not
matter what I did (menus, dragging, resizing, clicking in applications).

Indeed, wmii was the not the cause, nor was Rumai. After reading a
thread on mouse issues on Ubuntuforums (soon - a switch to Arch :-),
nevertheless a good forum) [1], I switched the mouse driver in
xorg.conf. The relevant section in it is:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"
    Driver "evdev"
    Option "Name" "Logitech USB Receiver"
    Option "HWHEELRelativeAxisButtons" "7 6"

Prior to that I used "mouse" as driver.
