Drive me crazy, keyboard cat

Catwalkedacrossmykeyboard filter: My cat sauntered across the keyboard of my Powerbook G4 (running 10.4.11) while I was using it last night, and now the display-- the desktop-- is responding weirdly to the cursor. Help?

When I move the cursor, the whole damn background + icons move. Moving the cursor now, with a browser window open, slides the whole browser window around. The icons don't all display at once, and I have to move the cursor around to locate them off the "edges" of the display. It's as if the desktop is somehow exists in a larger space than the display, and as I move the cursor the whole window shifts to give me a view of the hidden parts. I have tried the obvious: restarting, looking for a way to change it in the Finder's view options, checking system preferences, sleeping on it and trying again, and attempting to phrase a question for MacHelp (not too productive). What am I overlooking, and how can I change it back? If it's any help, he walked across the top part of the keyboard, going left to right, and managed to open up Spotlight at the same time.
