Feel free to completely ignore me here, since I really don't know
anything about the X server, but what about using the same mechanism
that Xeyes uses to track the mouse?  It seems to me that Xeyes tracks
the mouse movements while still allowing apps and WMs full access to
the mouse.  Perhaps this would help with the panel issue at least, if
not the workspace wrap issue.

Just a suggestion...
