#7 Strange mous behaviour

In some games (cruise for a corpse, for example), when
the mouse is not caught (ctrl+F10), there is a strange
problem.

It is as if the windows cursor(A) acted like an analogic
joystick on the mouse cursor of DOSBox(B). When A is
in the middle of the DosBox window, B is still. If you
move A a little to the left, B starts to go to the left, and
stops only when A goes back to the center of the
window. If you put A a little more to the left, B goes
faster to the left, and so on for the other directions.
I hope you understand what I mean, although the
easiest way to figure it would be to test it by yourself.

If you catch the cursor, there is no problem.

    I forgot that: In the previous version, going to fullscreen solved
    the problem too. Maybe because the cursor was
    automatically caught?

    Well it's impossible to make the mouse respond correctly to most
    games when it's not locked in the window. Only very few games work
    correctly with that and the rest just screw up. So lock the mouse already :)
