Description Yile Ku 2016-09-13 19:11:26 UTC
Mac Pro OS x 10.11.6.  I use XQuartz with GNU Radio companion.  After a few minutes my cursor and trackpad get wierd.  Movment isn't tracked and it thinks I have two or more fingers are down.

That happens at a lower level than XQuartz.  That means we're getting NSEvents from the OS X WindowServer that indicate a scroll even instead of a mouse event.  XQuartz has no control over that.

how do I resolve this ?

No clue.  I've not seen such an issue happen.  Does it go away when you reboot?  Use an external mouse?
