NOTE: I posted the specs for two machines labeled as (1) and (2).

Model: (1) HP Compaq nx6320     (2) Self-assembled rig
Operating System: (1) Windows XP Pro SP3     (2) Lubuntu 11.10
CPU: (1) Intel T2400     (2) AMD Athlon XP 32
Memory: (1) 512MB     (2) 2GB
Video Card: (1) Built-in Intel display chip     (2) ATI Radeon
Vassal version: 3.1.17
Java version: 1.6.0_29-b11
Vassal module name and version: Warmachine (version 4.1). Module file
name is WarmachineHordes41.vmod
Problem step-by-step:
1) Start a new online game
2) Start a new game by going to File > New Game, and choosing any of the
maps in 'Empty Map' or 'Steamroller' or 'Custom'. Choose as either
Player 1 or Player 2.
3) Once the map is loaded, click on either the 'Red' ruler button or the
'Green' ruler button. This activates the corresponding virtual measuring
tape.
4) Left-Click and drag the ruler across the map. Then Left-click again
to lock it. 
5) Sometimes the ruler will lock in place (clicking on the corresponding
button unlocks it again), but other times the origin point will jump to
a different, random point in the map. This happens regardless of the
map, and happens to either Player 1 or Player 2, but not both at the
same time. Usually, only one of the player will experience the problem
while the other one suffer no problem.
6) If the ruler locks in place in your first try, it will behave
normally that way for the duration of the game. If the ruler behaves
erratically, it will behave that way until you restart Vassal.
