Ok, please try this version and let me know:

I think I was able to replicate the problem. On my machine if I move the mouse in circles,
it used to pause for a little bit, and the continued following the host mouse. I removed two
sleep statements, and after that I saw an average speed of 65MHz on a P3-1.5GHz at a
12Hz refresh rate, to the detriment of everything else running on the machine.

This unfortunately breaks the throttle mechanism, but I'd have to rewrite that anyway. Received on 2007-03-20 11:45:22
