comment trackpoint: cannot move mouse pointer a short distance
@bain: Yes, it seems to be the same problem, and the suggestions certainly do help, but don't quite give the USB trackpoint the same "feeling" as the laptop one. The patches mentioned at bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=682413 don't seem to be merged upstream; if I have time, I'll try and compile a kernel with those applied and see if it helps. In any case, if you make your comment into an answer I'll accept it.

comment trackpoint: cannot move mouse pointer a short distance
Well, I don't use the touchpad, but rather the trackpoint (the red knob located between the B,G,H keys), but yes, I used to be able to move the pointer a single pixel at a time (both with Ubuntu 12.04/Gnome, and also previous versions of Ubuntu as long as I've used this external keyboard). I still can with the trackpoint built into the laptop, but no longer with the one on the external keyboard. I've never used Unity.
