My mouse is driving me crazy

I've experienced this since 10.10 was released.
This is a relatively new install of Natty without Unity.
The mouse will lag at times. Cursor movement can be several seconds 
behind the mouse movement. Clicking a button will often yield no results 
and take three or four clicks before anything happens. Scrolling through 
a directory with lots of files, it first acts naturally then won't 
scroll for a few seconds then suddenly takes off again.
It will usually behave for a bit after a reboot but eventually it will 
start acting up again and on occasion the problem clears up suddenly for 
no apparent reason without a reboot. There have been long stretches when 
it acts as it should and it appears to have resolved itself but it 
doesn't last.

I do use Quick Synergy but it doesn't matter if it's running or not 
cursor behavior is the same either way.
