3DConnexion Spaceball with mouse movement at the same time slows model rotation

Something that has been bugging me for awhile.


I have a 3DConnexion spaceball.  Just the little puck shaped one with the steel base.  I also have a Logitech G500 mouse.

I don't recall when it started happening but while rotating with the spaceball and also moving your mouse at all at the same time will dramatically slow down the model rotation.

If you don't touch the mouse at all, rotation is butter smooth.  Touch the mouse while rotating, boom major stutter.


Is there any way to fix this?  Aside from obviously not touching the mouse.   But they advertise the spaceballs as a way to use both at the same time to boost productivity, but if it slows you down that kind of takes a hit.


Any input would be appreciated!
