I already asked this question in #xorg on freenode, but it did not seem
to generate any answers there. I am sorry if this reposting causes any
Was there any change done between 126.96.36.199 and 1.4.1~git20080131 that
would induce some seemingly buffer related bug in the forwarding of
input events to clients?
Ever since I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04, when I move the mouse fast in
games, all input is being delayed and processed in large chunks until
the situation stabilizes again after I have not moved the mouse at all
for a while.
My rough estimate for the speed at which this happens is 30cm/s at
1800CPI, or 21260C/s.
The effect is exacerbated when I remove the CorePointer option from the
mouse. Then it already happens at very low speeds.
The bug does not occur on the Desktop itself.
I am fairly certain that it is related to xorg, as downgrading SDL to
the version that was used before the distribution upgrade did not change
Thank you for your attention,
