I saw this problem with the AFS client 3 or 4 years ago (?).  If memory 
serves, it was on IBM computers and the source of the problem might have 
been the mouse or video driver but its been so long ago I can't remember 
the details.  I think I used windowsupdate to update the driver instead 
of using an older one that IBM provided.  Just figured I would throw it 
out there in case it helps.
