When moving the mouse around the curser will quickly go to the left or the top of the screen randomly

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Move the mouse in cirlces

Actual Results:  
Moved to the top, or left randomly

Expected Results:  
Not move around the screen randomly

The problem also happens in windows, but they have been able to patch it, and
fix it, but there is nothing in linux .. at least none that i cant find ..
plugging it into the PS/2 port will also fix the problem, but for us who want to
use our usb ports, its still a problem .. heres some links to help*&p_li=
