I, too, just started having this issue yesterday. I have been using 2011 full since last summer and never had any issues until yesterday. It was driving me nuts! Zoom e does work for me to prevent the jumpy cursor.
I did notice acad.exe in task mngr does go up to about 40% of cpu ussage when i exit block editor and move the cursor around only within the application. Not sure what it is. Would love to figure out what it is since it worked fine until yesterday.

Hello!!! We need help. Where are the autodesk people. This is a huge problem since autocad 2010 was working fine and because of the obligation of licence renwal i'm stuck with a program that is faulty....
I seen this happen today on another guy's machine. I had to reopen AutoCAD and it was fixed, but make sure you have nothing else open with your session of AutoCAD. Often times this can be a virtual memory thing. Autodesk will most likely pin it on this anyway so may as well close all other acad sessions and even mail etc. and then try to replicate it. If it happens then you have issues.
Ensure you have all the service packs, drivers, and hot fixes, seems to be a long list. Also, i've also found that turning my regenauto setting off helps out. I redefined my "RE" command to be regenall.
Is there a resolution to this issue its a real pain inserting blocks, editing them, and then zoom extents, regen, zoom back in.
Just installed 1.1 update and no change!!!!!!!
Autocad LT 2011
Still no solution to this? Ridiculous. Very unproductive on large drawings where I have to zoom all and regen---then find where I was working...
Try setting your Display Properties.
Right Click on Desktop select Properties / Settings / Advanced / Trouleshoot - try dicrease your Hardware acceleratoin or Start / Control Panel / Display / / Settings / Advanced / Trouleshoot. Hope its work
Try LIMITS command.
type LIMITS on command line than select "OFF" or select first left lower corner than select right upper corner of your drawing area.
If anyone is having this issue still, I have AutoCAD 2014 LT. When exiting the block editor is was laggy slow and choppy.
I followed the above, and using zoom extents fixes it! Hopefully it doesn't happen more. This issue only happened in one particular drawing. Office just switched over from 2000, so there is LOTS of errors and corrutpions with the old files going forward.
