odd problem with mouse

Ok.. here is my problem..
I have slack 8.1.. and everything works ok..
Except my mouse.
Every so often it something will happen and the mouse will do this.
say for instance I'll click on an icon, it will have the click happen an inch or two away from where I put the cursor.

It's a usb mouse.. optical. works great otherwise.
And it was doing this with my other ps/2 mouse as well..
