Mouse clicking problem

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you click somewhere with your mouse, it should actually effect that spot... Well.. for some odd reason my mouse is clicking about 4 pixels to the left of where the mouse is on this particular system lol

Here's my mouse device calls in XF86:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Mouse"

Option "Protocol" ""
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Emulate3Buttons"

It could be a problem with your display setup, although kind of unlikley. Make sure your resolution, desktop size, and such are all set correctly.
