FYI - my Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t has a synaptics pad where the mouse buttons
simply not work under F13 64bit.
Dunno why, will file BZ tmrw.

The only mouse pointer problem I've experienced in F13 is that the mouse
pointer goes playing hide and seek ( bug 537065 ) on only one of my
from time to time.
However I know of a touchpad on one old German laptop ( I think it was
branded Medion or something ) that experiences weird behaviour similar
to what you describe and couple of interesting intel based graphics
twirks which I unfortunately dont have in my possession or unlimited
access too to file bugs to get those things FIXED or at least look at.
