I'm running KDE (using libc_r), and run setiathome and/or dnetc in the
background.  I've also tried killing the background tasks, but it makes
little difference.  I also use moused and /dev/sysmouse for X.  I've even
tried renicing moused to negative nice values, and that doesn't change
much either.

The mouse gets 'sticky' under moderate/heavy load, as other people have
described.  I haven't swapped back to SCHED_4BSD recently to compare, but
I'm sure it was smoother before I switched.
