Hello Graham,

You need to set the mouse acceleration and threshold to get an optimal
behaviour. You should check 'man xset', search for 'm' (mouse). For
example, 'xset m 5 9' yields a medium behaviour. If you experience
problems with high Resolution, you can try something like 

  % xset m 3/5 1

i.e. to choose fractional value for acceleration and 1 for threshold.

However, I simply use Xfce's Mouse Preferences for the same purpose
(to speed up my mouse) and it just works.
