ps/2 port? Maybe my hardware is funny, but it happened on two PCs. If
I move really fast, the cursor freezes for a moment, it looses data sent
from the mouse.

For example, I send the ball spinning on its hole, and the cursor just
dances about the same spot till the ball slows down. In windows it bangs
to the border, fast.

Setting two speeds helps. Acceleration, I think they call it. But my mouse
does not moves by "lines", just by pixels. Or do you refer to the wheel?
That one jumps, yes. Touchy design.
