That's not the problem either. There are two problems: first, the refresh
rate of the mouse is not fine enough to have the mouse really visit
contiguous pixels; second, the gui refresh rate slows down Tcl/Tk, such
that Tcl/Tk may get several mouse events in a burst if one screen refresh
takes too long, and I suppose that Tcl/Tk keeps only the most recent one.
