I like using a fast mouse, so I use
xset to speed it up, more than possible with the normal gnome settings.
When I switch to a tty and back to Gnome, my mouse is really slow again (changed to default setting?). Since a while I just open up a terminal, which runs the .bashrc in which I put a
xset m <fast> <faster>.
But why does switching change the settings anyway? And how can I stop this behaviour?
Edit: I'm working on a Debian system (might be important concerning some xorg behaviour)
