I've had a PowerBook G4 for a while and whether you are using the touchpad or a USB mouse the pointer seems to slow down when you pass over clickable items such as the minimize/maximize red/green/yellow circles for windows or even over icons on the desktop. Basically pointer speed goes from about a 8 (pretty fast) down to 2 (really slow). Once I move off of the clickable item pointer speeds goes back to normal. Is there a way to disable this default behavior? It drives me nuts to no end as my Windows machines do not do this. In addition I have read that the acceleration curves Apple uses are not the same as found on Windows machines. This is NOT what I am talking about. I've already found a program that lets you modify these acceleration curves for the mice.
