Wink Mouse Sensitivity / Acceleration

I have a bit of a problem. I want to increase the sensitivity of my mouse, even though mouse acceleration is set to zero, with
xset m 0

This does turn the hated acceleration off, but now the mouse moves very slow. How do I bump up the sensitivity? Doing something like an "xset m 3" is not acceptable... as that turns accel back on! (3/1 accel, "default" threshold, whatever that is)

Do I need to change something up in my XF86Config-4? If so, what? =)

Here is my mouse config in XF86Config-4;

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "BaudRate" "1200"
Option "Resolution" "2000"

Try inserting the last 2 lines and play around with the value of Resolution. This setting works very well with my Intellimouse.
