I am using a Cirque Serial SmartCat touchpad, GlidePoint Software version If I move the mouse while mail is being received, it *really* screws up
my mouse functionality. I usually have to resort to MouseKeys and shut
down/reboot as soon
as possible.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move mouse while mail is being received.

Actual Results:  
Mouse becomes extremely unreliable, not moving when I try to move it, clicking
when I'm just trying to move it, etc.

Expected Results:  
Mouse should bahave as usual.
