If I had to take a guess, I would not say the video driver but XBMC. KDE 
and Gnome get a lot of development put into them but it could also be 
that X server is not yet caught up to the rest of the world. But I think 
the recent XOrg 7.5.1 updated a lot of non-display drivers so who knows. 
BIOS is up to date on this PC? It's s USB or PS/2 mouse? If USB, check 
in the BIOS for some setting called USB Legacy support and see if it is 
on or off. See also if in the BIOS there's a USB setting related to USB 
port speed (i.e. HighSpeed or SuperSpeed).
