SUMMARY mouse speed

the answer to controlling mouse speed in openwindows is
RTFM on xset...

xset m [acc_mult[/acc_div] [thr]]

and it works.

     m The m option controls the mouse parameters. The
             parameters for the mouse are `acceleration' and
             `threshold'. The acceleration can be specified as
             an integer, or as a simple fraction. The mouse, or
             whatever pointer the machine is connected to, will
             go `acceleration' times as fast when it travels more
             than `threshold' pixels in a short time.

xset m 4 50 works good for me.
