Indeed, it always felt like it was a trackpoint issue. A gentle nudge to
the trackpoint used to make the problem go away for a while. Not using
the trackpoint, but the touchpad instead, reduced the frequency of the
problem very much.
I always thought it was the trackpoint getting stuck slightly tilted to
the upper-left direction, instead of getting back 100% to vertical. But
of course I had no proof.
Eventually I started to use the touchpad almost exclusively and then the
problem almost disappeared.
I don't have that laptop anymore so I can't do any tests.
