Well, I did a bit more investigation and put a printf into the function
sdl_send_mouse_event in sdl.c to see what was being sent from the Host
OS to the guest OS.  It would seem that the SDL_GetRelativeMouseState
function is reporting odd values for dx and dy on my laptop but not on
my other machine.  Both of them are running the same OS for the host OS,
Fedora Core 3.  One is a normal computer with a PS/2 mouse and the other
is a  laptop with a Synaptics Touch pad and a USB attached mouse.  The
laptop actually has both devices going through GPM which is set as a
repeater in PS/2 mode.  So the data being sent to xorg should be PS/2
data.  Thus the data that SDL is getting should also be PS/2 data, but
from the look of it, it isn't.  From the look of it, it should be
reporting small changes either a small positive value or a small
negative value.

On my laptop it actually jumps all over the place.... but it's usually
large positive values.  I have more investigation to do but it might be
something like a buffer not getting written write or getting written
with junk data.  

Juergen, what type of pointing device do you have?
