Windows 8.1 gamers complaining of mouse lag

Eurogamer spreads news that Windows 8.1 has introduced a new bug that can cause mouse lag and cursor jumping in some games. Apparently, something changed in the way Windows updates pointer positions and that's causing problems with games that don't use Raw Input for reading mouse movements.
A Reddit thread reporting the issue described Deus Ex: Human Revolution and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat as "close to unplayable" as a result. Apparently Call of Duty games and Metro 2033 are affected as well.

It's only video games that don't use Raw Input for reading mouse movements that are in trouble. Something has changed in the way Windows updates pointer positions and that's what is apparently causing the problems.
Full details and a temporary fix can be found at Reddit.
