GPM + evdev = change in mouse behaviour?

I recently changed the PROTOCOL in /etc/sysconfig/mouse to evdev and
was surprised because it changed the feel of the gpm console mouse.
The mouse is much more jittery now - double clicking often causes the
selection to jump up or down a line and continuous clicking will make
the selection wander up or down the screen. It's not fatal but it is
Any suggestions for making the mouse less jittery? And how is it
possible for evdev to change things in this way? I assumed that it
would just send the same events to gpm as before, just by a different
route internally, but it seems I was wrong.
