When gnome3 first came into the unstable repositories (more than a year 
ago?) I remember having a similar problem, where the mouse would freeze 
and it would take a couple of seconds to start responding again.  
Eventually, I figured out that the system setting to disable the 
touchpad when typing had been activated.  I turned off this option and 
things were back to normal.
