Hi Alexander!

A little thought on the "jumpy" (probably out of sync) mouse.  If it is a
wheel mouse try moving the wheel a few clicks in each direction and waiting
a second be for moving the mouse or clicking.  I have a similar jumpy mouse
problem with a system using KVM switching.  On one wheel mouse the problem
was cleared by doing what I mentioned above.  On the current wheel mouse I
disconnect the PS/2 connection at the KVM switch to cause sort of a mouse
"re-boot" and the problem is cleared.

Probably I should go into the system and see if there is a simple way to
re-sync or detect loss of sync and re-sync the mouse somehow.

Have fun!
