Hello Nathanael,

interesting Patch. I remember wondering about the sudden "border" you hit
while rotating a 3d view from my very early Blender days :) Nice that
someone thought the same.

I've applied this to my instinctive-blender tree, and I find it very useful,
though I increase TRACKBALLSIZE to 1.7 to better match the former

I guess Blender would benefit from it. Let's ask Ton though before we commit
it :)
