Lately I've noticed some annoying behavior with my mouse, and I was wondering what others' experience and advice might be.
I've noticed that when I move the pointer over the SW window, it halts whenever something in the graphics view gets highlighted. For example, if I'm moving across the graphics area dynamically highlighting a face or edge sometimes causes the pointer to hesitate over that entity. The pointer does catch up to where it's going. This seems to be much worse when the system is working hard in general, and also occurs in other apps. If the CPU is pegged, I can alos get the effect over blank space on the desktop, or when waiting for the task bar to pop up or something. This can make everyday mouse work frustrating, as I sometimes get enough lag that I can't see where the pointer should be for a moment, and I have to wait for it. Rarely more than a fraction of second, but enough to be annoying and cause missed clicks.
Maybe I'm nuts, but I seem to remember that my mouse pointer used to be much less affected by system load. Do other people have this behavior? Could it be a driver issue?

I'd try newer mouse drivers, but I've read of issues with Intellimouse 5 drivers and SW mmb rotation.
