It seems mice normally survive 2 years under my use. This one has left
button repaired and middle button failing... If debouncing gives it
one more year, it will be success...

Not... really, right? You need to send an release some time after
button indicates release if bounce did not happen. It is similar to
autorepeat needing a timer.

Let me gain some experience with the patch. I don't think hardware
does as heavy debouncing as you describe.

Best regards,
