    I use the Mouse Accelerator preference pane which allows you to control the amount of acceleration applied to the mouse. When restarting the computer you must go back into preferences and re-apply your chosen settings. Is there a way to make this happen automatically or another work-around program/pref. pane/terminal entry which can resolve this?

    If I found the right preference pane, it seems it hasn't been updated since Snow Leopard. there's a chance it could not be compatible with Maverickls.

    I suggest you try and contact the software developer responsible for it - that would be the best way to get it fixed.

    Same problem with Better Touch Tool so I doubt it's app related.

    I know its not app related or a mavericks thing. For some reasons you have to activate the prefs pane every time it restarts. Perhaps automator could be used to re-enable on every restart?

    Give this article a look. You might be able to put together an Applescript to do what you want then launch the script as a startup item.

    I use MouseZoom. Been using it since OS X 10.3.

    The last update (2.4) is for 10.6, but it's working just fine for me under Mavericks and I've never had to do what you are doing.
