I've seen this sort of problem in server versions of Ubuntu as well as Microsoft Windows 7. The cursor just wanders all over the place as I type an e-mail message. However, I've rarely seen it in using Ubuntu's GUI Terminal mode.

I am not sure whether this is a hardware problem. My computer is an HPd530 tabletop,

What kind of mouse or pointing device do you have? When my cursor sometimes does strange things it's because the sensor in my laser trackball is dirty. I just pop out the ball and blow out the lint. Walla, problem solved.
Next time this happens, try unplugging your pointing device from the computer, if that's convenient, and see if the problem goes away.

If its web based or contains HTML views, it could be a script embedded into an email, especially if its cross-platform. Also my mouse does that to a limited effect when batteries are near death

This can be problematic when using a laptop with/without mouse. The keboard's pad sensor will mistake hand movement to mean mouse response.

This happens all the time with couple of my laptops that I use.

Yes,its an issue on certain PCs pads. (Last winter, I went to far as to wear a glove with qne finger cut out so that the pad would not mistake errant needs. Laughing Strange to others around, but true.)

If this is the environment you are using, try covering the keyboard pad with a small box piece of paper when you type as this too, I've found, also works.

Here to help
