Mouse in Metro  X ?

Why is my mouse cursor behaving funnily when in X ?

My mouse cursor seems to be a little to the left of the actual mouse events.

When using a virtual screen, the bigger the virtual screen resolution is, the more the mouse cursor points wrong.

I am using the AfterStep wm and MetroX on a Matrox Millenium.

Are you using the gpm mouse server?
Are you using a bus mouse?
What are you calling funny behavior?

I've heard of problems with running GPM under X.  GPM is a mouse server that allows you to copy/paste under Linux.  Sometimes this can interfere with the X server.  Although you weren't very specific as to what "funny" behavior is, I assume it could be something like jerking, or dissappearing.  These are both characteristics of the above scenerio.  I suggest you either disable GPM, or re-install it.  Try disableing it, and if it works, you found your solution.  Otherwise....
