I just did a quick test with today's git (wine-1.3.22-255-g4c0c0d3)
(which has http://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git/commitdiff/adb86c5f2a2584dc8131b08d26aef7c82910d0b5).
Using Duke Nukem Forever, which has the mouse jumping bug

plain wine: I can move normally, with occasional mouse jumps.
wine + GrabPointer=N: mouse spins around uncontrollably, a la bug
wine configured with --without-xinput2: mouse movement isn't fluid at
all. Instead, the only way the cursor will move is jumps in a random
direction (like bug 27156, except there is no normal behavior in
between the jumps).
