I suggest you re-think your user interface design so
that it doesn't involve moving the mouse pointer. Some
people (including me) find it very disconcerting when
this is done. It feels like someone has grabbed my hand
and moved it without my consent.

For example, instead of just moving the feature, allow
the user to drag it into a new position.
