That sounds like a bug to me, so I've changed it to call updateScreen()
at most once every time updateInput() is called, and - since it's
triggered by mouse movement - only when the cursor is visible.

I've only made the change on the trunk, so if it breaks anything...
well, there's plenty of time to undo the damage. :-)
