Some users reported that the Mighty Mouse had some issues with right clicking, and often times the single fat button would click both sides of the mouse. It is unclear whether or not this has been addressed.

This was not an issue of right clicking and having the single button click both sides of the mouse. It is an issue of the mouse working differently than people expect, which is why it is so terrible. To properly right click, you actually have to raise your left click finger off of the surface of the mouse.

That was the issue.

Even the lightest touches on the left side of the mouse registers a "button 1" event in Xev and keeping your finger millimeters off the surface during a click generates a "button 3" (right) click event. I personally believe that the logic chip checks the value of the left sensor when the mini switch is depressed (remember, this same switch is depressed regardless of which side you click on). If the left sensor registers any contact, a left-click event is dispatched and if the left sensor is not depressed, you can infer that the user is pushing on the right side.
