I was assuming that the mouse is faulty, I did not mean it was not a
good mouse in it's day.  I agree it is possible that the problem is
that the standard settings do not work well with this mouse even if it
is in full working order.  Unless there is evidence from another mouse
of the same type it is difficult to know which it is.  I also agree
that the fact that it works ok with 12.04 is suggestive.  Time may
tell, if it gets worse then that would confirm that it is faulty.
