the fact that you have very high sens in the quake3 menu may be an  
indication that you infact don't have mouse acceleration!
do you have dgamouse enabled? Please PLEASE tell me all your settings  
specs, please post your xorg.conf and every setting you can think of :)

I need to have this enabled to get xrandr to work, this disables dga-mouse  
too right?
     SubSection  "extmod"
         Option  "omit xfree86-dga"
