Not sure what the bug is here. mousex and mousey are ints, so in Python, you'll get an int when you divide. If you add flt(y)/x you get a fractional value. What are you expecting?

If you think it would be better to generate these points as float, I can do it. A bit on the fence.

I presume the turtle division operator casts them as float. So the issue was my python skills. I suppose lots of other stuff is int too? Xpos? Screen width? Colour? Cast all python input as float?

Let's try it and see what breaks. I'll attach a patch.
