I do have a switchbox, maybe that was it. And the men in white coats have
been and gone, but they forgot to take the kids :)
I suggest that is the last e-mail you send before 9.00AM, Conor! :-)
I'm going calling Childline!!! and the men in white coats!!
As for epileptic-type mouse movements, that could be the firmware in the
Microsoft Mouse screaming 'I'm lost' in the X-windows env.
Naa, I have come across this before with MS Intellimice.....
1) Are you using a switch-box? Known problem
2) Try switching the resolution to lower res and try it...don't ask...it
worked for me!
3) Try lowering the sensitivity and raising resolution of the mouse
4) Also, try using the default 3-button mouse server instead..same effect.

Do you have it dual booted with doze? I had that problem with my mouse when
it the PC was uncleansed, I had to do a cold-boot to have a functionning
mouse. Never figured out why as I wen't pure linux.
Probably totally useless to you,
p.s.: I got one of those remote control trackball mice, how did I ever do
without it? Now for the keyboard....
The kids are having pokemon battles wreckin your head and your surfing or
whatever, turn the monitor and go outside, stick your fingers up at the kids
and carry on surfing... see? no? Wait till you have kids!
