Umm, Optical mouse do behave erratic, when the surface
below isn't even or isn't the way it should be. The
surface should be even, plain. Using a good mousepad
should help. 

(Note: I have observed this behaviour in my college
lab, where we do have, an even surface, but it is
inclined to an angle to a line running parallel to the
ground. Eeks, sorry if there is too much geometry in
this ;) )
