xserver 1.6 branch and mouse position zapping

Just built the 1.6 branch + recent mesa snapshot and other such stuff.

It seems to be stable enough just now, but one thing that's been 
affected is how the mouse positions itself to top-left after a certain 

So far I've found odd behaviour when doing:
  * Compiz cube dragging (ctrl+alt+click and drag)
  * Compiz window moving (alt+click and drag)
  * Compiz window moving (click and drag on title bar)

When this happens the mouse just jumps to the top left, but not always 

While this could easily be a compiz issue (I certainly cannot reproduce 
in metacity), I'm guessing it's related to the xserver change. I have 
also updated to the latest input-proto and other such stuff too.

Is there an obvious starting point to look further into this? Or perhaps 
it's a known issue?
