It looks like your system isn't reading all the mouse positions,
only getting some of the mouse motion events.

I don't remember whether you said what platform you were on, but
it might be worth adding a line to your gimprc (that's a text file
located in your GIMP profile directory -- just edit it when gimp is
not running, and add the line) and try both settings to see if one
of them makes it better.
