Followup-For: Bug #303386

This seems to be a general fight between the Unclutter and SDL packages for
handling of the mouse during full-screen SDL games.  No special hardware
needed - even when playing with the mouse, Unclutter causes erratic jumping
mouse input in full-screen SDL games.

Reproducible with Briqulo, Enigma and Zaz as well as Tecnoballz.

Counterexample: Einstein seems unaffected even in fullscreen mode.

Wondering what to do with this bug now.

Seen on current Sid:
