*gulp*  Actually your saying that reminds me why I never test the game in 
full-screen mode under 2000-- I get exactly that "stuck to the sides" effect.  
I have to move the mouse hard to the right to get it to move off the 
left-hand side, but then it's only moved about a 3 millimetres before the 
pointer is stuck to the right-hand side.  For some reason I didn't think this 
was the same problem as they were having with the touch-screen.  Shit shit 
shit, talk about blinding yourself to the truth :-)  I still have no idea why 
it does this, though.
