    Certain programs, when they launch or quit, save/restore the mouse cursor's position. This can cause unexpected cursor jumping. CrossOver is an example of a program that does this.

    Is this only when Quicktime or iTunes is running?

    This happens on my mac at work and it is frustrating as hell. I would love to learn of a solution to this problem.

    :confused:

    pretty sure its just when an optical mouse goes over cracks/dirt on your desk. best way to fix this is buy a mouse pad or buy a laser mouse which doesnt do this.
