 When the xserver is busy, it tries to "optimize" consecutive movement
 events. In particular, it throws away some events that has not been
 processed. This is very unpleasant behaviour when input method based on
 gesture recognition (e.g., qwo) is used. In this case, quality of the
 recognition is severly degraded.

 As a workaround, it is sufficient to comment out lines 100-106 in
 mi/mieq.c, as indicated by the attached patch (tested on xserver-kdrive-
 glamo-1_1.3.0.0+gitr9b28d998424c77fbc057dd3a022ccbb122793a52-r3, FSO
 milestone 5).
