In version 1.2, Sesamouse works in the menu bar officially, so you don't need to manually hide the Dock icon. Thanks for sharing this tip for expert users of the early versions, though!

This application brings some lost functionalities to Magic Mouse, like zoom and rotation on Photoshop, Picture Viewer, Finder and even page zoom on Safari. So I think this is a perfect combination with MagicPrefs or BetterTouchTool. With this application you can show people how magic is magic mouse, rotating a simple photo, using your fingers on the mouse. A+ great utility!

The only thing is try to hide the dock application icon, when the application is running on login. If you want to do so, you can follow the next steps:
+ Go to Application Icon, and using the menu select "Show Package Contents"
+ Open the file info.plist and in the end of the file and append the next two lines:
<key>NSUIElement</key>
<string>1</string>

Doing this, you can hide the application icon in the dock.
