Did you try using xset to test?

Here are some examples to try from command line:

Very Fast:		xset m 7 10

Fast:			xset m 3 10

System Default:		xset m default

Glacial:		xset m 0 10

Also look at mouse(4) manual page for xorg.conf configuration for 
"SampleRate" and "Resolution". (Do you have those in your xorg.conf?)
