Hmm, the mouse doesn't lock up on me... it just doesn't like going
left.  ONLY problems with going left, and I can get it to move left
again if I move in another direction.. but a few seconds like it stops
again.  It only happens with Sawfish (no prob if I use GNOME + twm, and
the problem is there if I run Sawfish w/o GNOME).
