I think you're right. I have MagicPrefs installed because I use the Magic Mouse when I travel. Uninstalling MagicPrefs seems to have fixed it so far as I can tell. I hate to lose MP, though. Oh, well, I guess. Thanks for the tip.

Im using Razer Death Adder also on my iMac27"
Since i upgraded to OSX Lion... im having the same problem as well..
Everytime i turn on my computer... it resets to the lowest speed..
I have to re-adjust my mouse speed setting....
oh also... if i change the speed as soon as OSX is booted, and open up an application afterworth.. like firefox or WoW..
it resets again!!
So now i have to open up an application first and then change the mouse speed setting... so i dont have to change the setting twice......
this is stupid...
seems like no promise of driver or firmware update from both apple nor Razer....
anyone have solution to this?
btw i do not use Magic Prefs

Got the same problem with a Razer Death Adder.
Some extra info; also happens when you disconnect your mouse for some time (like when using a KVM switch).
Maybe a workaround for the Death Adder; open up the application that came with the mouse and change the acceleration there. Best guess is that Apple doesn't do anything with those settings.

Getting this with my Razer Deathadder. In the deathadder control panel the settings are maxed because of how slow it is otherwise.
Taking out my mouse sets tracking speed to 1 and when I put it back in I have to set it back to 5

What I did orginaly was change the settings in the Razer Deathadder application to correct the speed. When you let the default speed normal in OSx and change the speeds in the Deathadder app everything should be working fine.
Isn't this fixed with a update already?

Would just like to confirm that Nick_de_K's 'solution' does not work. Yeah it may be EXTREMELY slow if you have the Mouse speed set to 1 in the Razer Deathadder controller panel... but I'm talking about having that set to maximum, having the DPI setting to maximum and that still isn't fast enough. I then set the Mac mouse settings to about 4/10 to get a little bit more juice but every plug in/out forgets that setting.

same issue here.
tried several workarounds, with com.apple.mouse.scaling plist, uninstalling/installing drivers and nothing works
Nick_de_K solution does not work for me either, i have the DeathAdder set to maximum and the preferences pane keeps resetting.
One thing ive noticed, setting the speed thtough com.apple.mouse.scaling, as soon as it boots, my speed is normal, but it changes back to slow after the boot is complete.
