One might become suspicous of your hardware at this point.  NetBSD
was kinda jerky on my Duron due to some incompatibility between
it and my HD controller.  I think that it's NetBSD's fault, but
what was really relevant is that it was downgrading to some PIO
mode for HD access.  That's a great way to make the computer
very slow, and the mouse jerky.

What hardware are you running?
