Probably a driver problem. If it is, you'll have the same problem with other
window managers (eg blackbox) - try with a different window manager and see
if you get the same problem.
The other thing that might be worth trying is to use is moused - it works
nicely here, and might circumvent whatever underlying problem is causing
your issue. I guess the FreeBSD Handbook should have some info on setting
up moused. If not, drop me a line, and I can send you my config.
