That might be the screen updating every time you move the mouse. You
probably have a 64bit ncurses with NCURSES_MOUSE_VERSION 2 (or

If you try defining NCURSES_MOUSE_VERSION to 1, you'll get what I have
in my netbook: fast mouse selection without screen updates
(REPORT_MOUSE_POSITION simply does not fit in the mouse mask, yet
another example of why ncurses sucks).
