I just got a Magic Mouse for my Mac Pro (2.8GHz 8-processor, late-2008), running 10.5.8. It connects through Bluetooth fine, but it doesn't seem to be recognized as a Magic Mouse. The "magic" features don't seem to be working. It only seems to do left- and right-clicks.

I also see that it doesn't seem to show up in the System Preferences Keyboard&Mouse panel, Bluetooth tab. No name or battery level is shown.

Yes, I did do a Software Update before and after pairing. Actually, come to think of it, that's not exactly true: Before pairing, I launched Software Update and found that it only had a Security Update pending (very unlikely to have anything to do with the mouse), so I did the pairing and then did the security update. After rebooting from that, I launched Software Update, and it said that I am up-to-date.

The book and the Magic-Mouse box say that 10.5.8 is a sufficiently high OSX version.

Any ideas on this? Thanks, everybody!
