I have the same sort of problem. I have a wireless and
optical mouse, so I have double the jumpiness. What I usually do if I'm having trouble cutting out something is:
First I crop out what I'm cutting out as closely as possible.
Then I select and fill in the biggest spaces I don't want with some color that is not in the part I want cut out, such as bright green or bright pink or something.
Next I zoom in and carefully paint the rest of the background with this color.
After everything I don't want cut is filled in I go to "select by color" and select the color I painted everything.
Then "Invert selection".
The section you want cut should be highlighted, now go cut and paste away!
Of course I don't know much about these kind of things so I kinda came up with that method on my own, someone else might have a much more simple and practical way of doing this.
I like you.
