[SDL] Kobo Deluxe sluggish?

Did anyone notice that Kobo Deluxe feels kind of sluggish,
especially when played at high frame rates? (70+ fps.)

Well, I did.

The game logic runs at 33.33 Hz (fixed frame rate of the original
XKobo), and I'm starting to think that's a bit low, especially
since the motion interpolation adds a latency of another *logic*
frame. There is a slight delay in the response of the controls,
which, for some reason, becomes more obvious at higher frame
rates. (To me, at least.)

I'll try to increase the logic frame rate (without breaking the
integer based animation logic... *heh*) and see if it helps.

Just wanted to know others noticed the latency, or if it's just
my nervous system that's went into turbo mode. :-)
