Dell Tablet mouse position reset

Greetings,

On a Dell Latitude xt2 tablet I have noticed that after a few minutes the mouse position will jump to the bottom right hand corner of the desktop.

I had a bunch of issues and weirdness with the mouse jumping around and phantom clicks happening and I disabled some of the pen and touch input settings and it seems much more like a normal laptop now.  However I can't find any setting that returns the mouse pointer to a certain position.

I just saw it happen while I was typing this.  There is a bit of a screen flash and then the mouse pointer jumps to the bottom right hand corner.

If anyone knows how to disable this behavior please let me know.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Sky

It seems to be a common problem: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19336013.aspx  The fix seems to be to disable the N-trig drivers, until Dell provides a fix.
