Hmmm could be many possibilities if you are using a wireless mouse sometimes those things auto jump on a dodgy surface probs unlikely. Which viewport are you working in as sometimes if you just try to drag vectors around instead of using the arrows in can sometime go wild. Other than that you maybe could have hit a hot key which increased the spacing who knows hopefully mattb can shed some light

using a cabled mouse in the perspective view point while using the arrows to move the vertex. not touching any keys when I move :(

I had the same problem with my laptop when I started the course, I think its something to do with 3Ds max and the RAM of the laptop, I upgraded to a 8gb RAM pc and it hasnt happened since.
