Pointer acceleration for pointingsticks does not feel 100% correct. It seems the pointer goes either slow or fast and there is not enough middle ground / middle speed.
So we need to re-visit / re-examine the pointingstick accel profile. Maybe a linear accel profile is a better fit for pointingsticks?
Patches available for testing are now in bug 91369, see comment 48
