Sculpt mode sensitivity

Hello!

Is there a way to reduce the effect of the grab tool (sculpt mode)? Like holding shift when grabbing? It happens to be very slow on some parts and very fast on others? I thought it was a problem with units and size but funny enough it didnt look like it after testing it on purpose. Looked more like it was less sensitive on a steep angle or something.

I’m running Blender 2.54 (latest official BF release from Graphicall) but also appeared in the latest official release from blender.org

Cheers

edit: same applies for panning in sculpt mode.
