Not sure if this should go here or in Xorg.conf, but seeing as I don't have xorg.conf configured anywhere, I'll try here first.

Issue

When attempting to drag a window, there is a noticeable lag between executing the three finger gesture and the cursor taking hold of the window. Similarly, there is a lag between ending the gesture and the cursor releasing the window. There is no lag in dragging or releasing with a standard mouse.

System

  • Host
    • iMac 14,2 (A1419), 32 GB memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M w/ 4096 MB vRAM
    • VirtualBox 5.1.28
  • Guest
    • FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE r321309
    • latest channel enabled
    • virtualbox-guest-additions-5.1.28 installed

I'd say this issue is either with MacOS itself or with the Mac version of VirtualBox. I doubt the guest OS has anything to do with it. A guest VM only 'sees' a standard PS/2 or USB mouse.
