    Check the underneath for dust on the optical part or any other particles that might have made their way in there.

    Can't see any obvious particles on the optical, but I wouldn't know. It's kind of excruciating looking at the optical

    Specs:
    17" iMac G5- 1.8Ghz - 1GB of Ram - AND - 17" Intel Core 2 Duo iMac - 2Ghz - 1GB of Ram
    I have a logitec Mouse I purchased and it does that very same thing. It's so annoying. I guess EVERY optical mouse has that same issue. That's the only thing I hate about opticle mice, ANY particle, even the smallest ones that we cannot see with the naked eye can make the pointer skip all over the screen. I can tell you that a White or mirrored surface work the best though.
