    So i noticed recently whenever Time Machine is running and the CPU usage is high, I experience mouse hopping. That is every couple of seconds, my mouse seems to have a huge moment of lag, and then it "hops" to a new location.

    This is quite frustrating and I notice this with both my USB mouse and Bluetooth Mouse. I'm currently using Steermouse 3.8 which I imagine probably has something to do with this.

    Anybody else experiencing this problem?

    I'm experiencing it with my 24" white iMac + bt mm. It also happens when doing other processor intensive stuff. It happens in photobooth like crazy sometimes, too. I guess that's what 10.5.1 will be for ;).

    That's the other situation where I experience this as well. If I reboot the problem goes away. Hope they do an update soon to resolve some of these issues.
