I have 2 systems with Logitech Marbel trackballs Optical. One is native
plugged into USB 1.x port on SUSE 8.2 and the other is same model but
plugged into PS/2 port via Ligitech adapter supplied.

When I 'snap' my finger on the ball for a burst of rapid movement I see
the 'stuck cursor' mentioned on the PS/2 connected TB, but on the USB
connected TB the cursor moves fasted than I can see.

I will remember this!
