If I pull the ball out of my trackball, the cursor goes to the top-left corner of the screen
Interesting. I just tried it (and took advantage of it to clear out the dust build-up on the bearings) and the cursor didn't move at all. Of course, I'm using Fedora 10, with Gnome and Compiz-Fusion, so that might make a difference.
