    I installed Snow Leopard last night, and am fully updated to 10.6.3. I immediately noticed the mouse cursor jumping around, doesn't matter what app I'm running -- it even happens in Finder. The arrow cursor will jump a third of the way across the screen, and in random directions. No way it's hardware, because I've not changed the hardware at all, and this never happened with 10.5.x. I'm not touching the computer at all; I'm using a detached keyboard and mouse.

    I hope Apple acknowledges this and fixes it!

    To be fair, I should also note that this could a Logitech Control Center problem. There are some comments on Logitech's support site about LCC v3.2 and cursor jumping.

    These last posts are from july 09. Does anyone know if the problem can be solved? Because i have installed SnowLeopard last month and this cursor is driving me crazy.
    Thanks for your reply.

    Actually, my posts are from last week. My cursor problem was solved by reverting to Logitech's LCC version 3.1 from 3.2. I can't say if that will solve your particular problem, of course.

    My mistake, sorry, I was looking at your registered date in stead of the post date. But I don't have anything of Logitech on my computer (as far as I know of), so that's unfortuanately not going to help me. Thanks for your answer anyhow.

    I'm getting this problem, too, and I'm certain it's not a hardware issue: This happens with both the trackpad (on my MacBook Pro), AND my wireless external mouse. It's only started happening with Snow Leopard.

    Also, I don't think it's a heat issue because I have the computer sitting on a wire shelf suspended about 10 inches above my desk.

    I do, however, have the Logitech drivers installed... maybe that's the problem.

    (just wanted to throw another case/configuration in here...)
