Mouse escapes window in FPS games

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hi:I've been playing Urban Terror and World of Padman on my laptop. They are fun, but pretty much once every gaming session I have the same problem. All of a sudden, the mouse "escapes" the window. By that I mean, if I'm running the game in, say, a 1024x768 window, I'll move the mouse to, say, turn my character to the left, when all of a sudden the character stops moving and the mouse cursor suddenly appears to the left of the window on the desktop. If I move the mouse to the right, the cursor goes back to the window, then disappears, then my character turns to the rig (HowTos)
