I can't test current behavior right now but IIRC the default action of left click happens on button up rather than button down, which conceptually makes more sense to me given that just pushing the button down doesn't necessarily mean that that alone is the expected to do anything, I may push the button down, do a move operation followed by an eventual button up as opposed to actually clicking. Same argument could be had for X1 and X2, even if those are of course far less commonly used buttons...
