Bug#283210: Jumping mouse in glx-mode


Package: xlibmesa-glu
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8
Severity: important

Maybe this bug is upstream. But I did not find any information about
this problem in the net.

The problem is that in any application using glx-mode (and only in
gls-mode) like tuxracer or unreal or other games the mouse is randomely
jumping in random (short) timeintervals to a fix position on the screen.
While in tuxracer this is just annoying in unreal for example it makes
the game unplayable as you need the mouse to play.

I have the problem now for long time and allways waiting if it will be
fixed with update of X or kernel or so as I do not exactely know where
the bug is located. It dosn't matter which kind of mouse using (usb,
ps2, serial) and dosn't mather which graphics board (Matrox, nVidia,
ATI Radeon) installed.

I have no clue if I'm the only who have this problem. But it is
reproducable on all computers I tested (with debian sarge and sid).

To reproduce the bug, start tuxracer, move the mouse a bit and wait
10-20 seconds...

Ah, yes, the seems only in the hardware glx mode, not when only software
rendering is unsed.
