WinUAE: Joystick problems

I'm trying to use a joystick with WinUAE 1.3.

Problem: If I let go of the joystick the cursor moves to the
upper left corner all by itself. Everything else works fine.

As long as I do something with the joystick it's OK.

Hardware: Digital joystick connected to the MIDI/joystick port
of my soundblaster.

Config data:
- 2 Axis/button joystick port 1 (Games &I/O ports)
INPUT:
- Configuration #1 (doesn't work in Compatibility mode at all)
- X-Axis: Joy2 hor
- Y-Axis: Joy2 ver
- Joystick dead zone 5% (>10% doesn't work at all)
- Digital joy-mouse speed 10
- Analog joy-mouse speed 20
- mouse speed 100
- The little checkbox in the upper right corner is checked

Still it doesn't work. What's wrong?

Thanks

PS: The game I'm trying to play is Paradroid 90

Have you calibrated the joystick in Windows?

Yes, ages ago.

I calibrated the joystick once again: Now the Amiga cursor moved
in the bottom right corner all by itself.

After a bit of fooling around with those INPUT numbers ("joystick
dead zone" etc.) it works fine.

Thanks a lot...

I guess the usual problem: Mouse activated in same port as joystick?

It certainly seems so. After a bit of pushing around the mouse the
joystick works fine.

It's just that I can't de-activate the mouse.

Even if I use "Game & I/O ports" to use port1 for joystick and
port 0 for NONE the mouse is still working in every game I use.

Any ideas?
