[CS:S] Mouse input delay #1395

Ubuntu 12.10 x64 & Arch Linux x64 (gnome 3 shell) have this lag where the crosshair doesn't actually move until about a half second after my hand moves. The crosshair continues to move for roughly a half second after my hand stops moving. CS:S runs between 200-300 FPS.

Playing Xonotic is fine with absolutely no mouse lag.

Steps tried:
1. Nvidia 313.09 and 313.18 drivers
2. Vsync disabled in-game and in the Nvidia control panel
3. Steam community disabled in-game
4. Mouse polling rate increased to 1000Hz

This is probably duplicate of #1375


Seems to be, see my comment there, it's generally same as what @arfett described.
