ALL: Joystick problem

Description

Both in ScummVM's own displays, and in Beneath a
Steel Sky displays, the cursor/mousepointer keeps
moving upwards by itself, until it reaches the top of the
display. Using the arrow keys in ScummVM displays
stops this behaviour, but in the BaSS displays nothing
helps. After quitting ScummVM, the behaviour
normalizes.

Starting ScummVM gives ther message "Using joystick:
Microsoft PC-joystick driver". Disabling the joystick in
ScummVM might solve the problem, but how to? The
stick is properly calibrated, ie, the cursor is rock steady
in all other games/apps.

Currently the only workaround is to remove your joystick. Either
SDL's Windows joystick code is buggy, or we are not using it
properly. In any case, I think supporting joysticks is of minor
interest, and since it is causing troubles for so many people, I'd
prefer to just disable it for now and maybe add a command line/
config option for it at a later point.

Try a recent Windows daily snapshot, joystick support is now
disabled by default.

I think this can be considered fixed.
