I was reading through :
and thought it could help.

Subject: B_MOUSE_MOVED, bug or feature ?

Does the system really generate only one B_MOUSE_MOVED event for each four (or so) pixels of movement, as Joerg Stegemann claims? Yes, and for the reason pointed out by many of our listeners: To avoid overflowing the message queue.

Listeners wrote in to suggest other MouseMoved() implementations and work-arounds.

THE BE LINE: As mentioned in the Be Book: "MouseMoved() should not be used to track the cursor inside a view. Use the GetMouse() function instead."
