OS 220.127.116.118 is stable, so it sounds like a job for the famous battery pull!
With your phone powered on, remove the battery then replace it a few seconds later.
Let us know if that does the trick.

I am experiencing the same problem.
I just got the 9780 as a replacement for my two year old 8520. I spent about 6 months researching the phone and its reviews - sadly I never saw this bug come up until after the new phone showed up yesterday.
I have read over this thread, as well as other forums and it seems to be an ongoing issues for a lot of users. I too am beginning if I should send it back and explore other options. I really don't want to because I like everything else about his phone, but I need something reliable... and this bug is VERY frustrating! Very!
if there is anything I can do to help - please let me know.

Sorry for delay I've been away.
I tried reloading the software as you advised but this does not seem to have made any difference it still jumps around in the evening and is a real pain now as its making it take twice as long just to send a txt as it keep jumping around (
Any other ideas?

Same result here Doc77, minues the slower performace. It runs the same as it did before but with no correction to the cursor. I'm guessing that something withing the trackpad is triggering the movement... considering how it's light/dark specific.
I'll just sit with it and it will slowly bump up and up until it reaches the top of a page. Then obviosuly stop becasue it has nowhere to go. I really hope there is a fix for this!

Just a reminder to anyone who's having problems with their phone and is unable to get it corrected by their carrier, your carrier is responsible for fixing the problem no matter what. They have a contract with RIM that says they will provide front-line support for your phone. If they are unable to fix the problem, you can request to have the problem escalated to RIM at no cost to you. RIM is in the business of designing the phones but they contract the support end to the carriers.
Don't live with a problem phone, demand that your carrier hold up their end of the contract with RIM.
I think I should have been a lawyer.

I have a new BlackBerry Bold and the cursor has been randomly jumping around. I've been working with our tech support department and have replaced the BlackBerry once. With both BBs I have had, the tech support dept has not been able to duplicate the problem, and in one instance they've looked over my shoulder as I was typing and they have seen the random jumping. At first we were puzzled - why does it happen when I type but not when they type???
After some more experimentation, I have figured out that if you put your fingers anywhere near the side of the screen, it induces random cursor jumps. I had a way of holding the BlackBerry that placed my middle and ring finger on one hand next to the screen, thus allowing me to type with my index finger. I don't like typing with my thumbs. But for some reason, having those fingers next to the screen is coupling into the screen and causing the random cursor jumps. When I hold the BB from behind and use two thumbs to type, I get almost no cursor jumping. That is how the tech support guys hold the BB when they type.
