X.org/kde 3.3: mouse gets "stuck" at the left of the screen
I am using Debian Sid, and, recently, I have experienced a quite strange problem:
Once in a while, the mouse will get "stuck" at the left of the screen, meaning that whenever I exceed the pointer threshold defined in the kde control panel, the mouse will "teleport" to the left of the screen.
This happens wether I exceed the threshold by moving horizontally or vertically, but, in either case, the mouse only "teleports" horizontally.
I can move the mouse fine, as long as I don't exceed the threshold.
The issue is "fixed" when I leave the current X session. (either ctrl-alt-backspace or Kmenu->logout)
The only extra info I can provide is:
A) I did not experience this problem before X.org.
B) This seems to happen when the system is under heavy load.
C) The two above might very well be coincidences.
D) This is definitely not a hardware problem. I have tried several mice.
