I had the same problem when I set up a new computer system with a PS/2 Kensington trackball. As soon as I would touch the trackball, the cursor would jump to the right side of the screen and stay there.
Fortunately, this trackball uses a serial to PS/2 adapter, so I removed the adapter and plugged the trackball into the serial port. Works like a charm now.
Funny thing is that my old PS/2 Microsoft mouse functions quite well on this system, so I'm guessing that it's a mouse hardware thing.
Hope this helps!
