A conundrum has occurred. I can't fix it without reproducing it, and from your
'finger' info it seems that you're safely on the other side of the pond where I
can't see the problem happen. Any ideas?

Shall I try 'Option "no_accel"' to see if its an X problem?

Closing - no further info, no other complaints, stale bug.
