I believe I have the same problem:
In game, suddenly I am looking at a spinning sky or at the ground. It
takes a few seconds to get my bearings again, by which time an opponent
has normally turned me to mush.
I have had the same problem with PS/2 and USB optical mouses.
In my case I am wondering if it could it be:
During the game, the optical mouse lifts up off of the mat and so
produces a chaotic signal (for-want-of-a-better-term).
