In those cases where some strange bug is occuring that affects player
position/view, one could record a demo and the replay should show the same
effects, probably even when replayed on a system with no such bug.  The only
exceptions are rendering bugs - which may not ever be observed by replaying a
demo on an unaffected machine.  For instance, if I have a corrupted texture
or display driver - the artifacts of those would not reproduce in a recorded

But this mouse problem is a good canidate for being caught on a recorded demo
- and might make reporting bugs easier.  However, there is also the
posibility that some mouse bugs people are reporting are independent of the
build - so it's good to verify that the bug follows the build.  My optical
mouse, for instance, will exibit problems like described above when something
as small as a cat hair lodges in the optical area of the mouse.
