I used to get much smoother mouse movement in RC1 and earlier. Maybe this was because of being able to specify the refresh rate? Is there a particular reason that was removed from the menu? Is there another way to control it? Or maybe there is another reason I am getting so much jitter now...

Also, Triple has been mis-spelt as Tripple in one of the menu items for a while.
