fwiw, there's a fairly easy way to quickly check libinput for changes and
that's by having the gtk3-headers installed at configure time and then
running sudo ./tools/event-gui to visualize the movement (Esc quits)

That tool uses libinput data directly to draw pointer motion etc, so it's a
way to quickly bisect to where changes happen. Without anything else to go
on, I'd say it's the new touchpad acceleration code from libinput 1.5 - the
max accel factor has changed so depending on the speed of the jumps, you can
now get stronger pointer movement.

Cheers,
Peter
