comment NVIDIA Proprietary Driver on Debian Jessie Problems
You don't need this entire xorg.conf file on a modern Xorg installation; just the "Device" section is sufficient to tell it which driver to use. It can autodetect the rest.

comment In what shared library is read()?
Point is, the wrapper function is in a shared library (specifically, libc). It's not right to say that no shared libraries are involved.

But the program isn't directly invoking the system call; that involves special machine code that you can't express in C. The program is instead calling a C wrapper for the system call, and the wrapper is a library function.

comment Avoid very fast double clicks
The mouse is supposed to do that already: it's called debouncing. It sounds like the switch is worn out and is bouncing a lot; it might be easiest to just get a new mouse.
