Based on reading everything I could about trackball going to the left and my own experience, my best theory is this: First of all, it only happens while plugged in to the USB. It may occur after based on how much a person bends or pushes the plugin to try and fix it. The cause is the contacts below the trackball heat up and eventually fry. The reason I went with this theory is because this issue happened to me right after I used a portable battery powered USB charger to charge my phone. In hindsight it all made sense because I do recall my battery, phone, and usb port getting hot when I was using it and has not occurred since I got a replacement while only using factory HTC chargers.
