Your report is not clear to me what you are describing.
Can you please describe the problem as detailed as possible,
and also give full step by step instructions on how to reproduce
the problem?  Also please include an attachment of your XFree86
log file using the link below.

Can't reproduce the problem you describe.  The closest thing I can think
of is when you are entering data in a form on a web page while using
the mozilla web browser, and the cursor moves around in an odd fashion.

If that is the problem you are describing, this is a mozilla bug, not
an XFree86 bug, and it is specific to Mozilla, not staroffice or anything
else.  Any other programs that embed mozilla would also show this.

It is due to the crappy editor built into mozilla, and is a known bug
reported many many times to mozilla.org, and open in their bugzilla
bug tracker.

Anyways, I'm closing this as I dont believe the problem is X related.
