Issue they're working on.

If you look at the past emails to this list a few weeks ago
mouse problems were discussed a fair amount.  They refered
to it as 'glx mouse' problems, so maybe it doesnt do it with
the other drivers, or maybe theres another mouse problem they've
not caught.

I think the mouse was fine in quake2-r0.15 so you could try
downgrading to that version.  The issue with that version for me
was 'MAX' was enabled in the default makefile which broke the
software rendering drivers, and also I was missing a file 'MAX'
needed so the glx driver didnt work either - but as been as you've
got 'MAX' working already, quake2-r0.15 might suit you fine.

Actually I think there may have been one or two occasional bugs
with the mouse in quake2-r0.15 but nothing that effected the
quality and feel of the mouse I think, just very occasionally
you'd get stuck moving in a direction and have to press escape a
couple of times.



(hoping that I've not completely answered the wrong question again,
