[SDL] Full screen cursor speed

Running in Windows, my game is getting about 20fps, but it seems the
cursor is also getting 20fps.  I always thought the cursor was running
in a different thread and was able to move across the screen
independent of SDL's final blit?  At least that has been my experience
with other DirectX full screen apps.

Is this a video card issue or a SDL issue?

I am not using HW surfaces or FLIP.

If I turn on flipping, the I have no cursor and the frame rate goes to
4fps (but that is another issue, not really my questions here, unless
they are related).
