Did you know that you made two threads with the same question?
As far as disabling the trackball, someone has probably done it; I think only through hardware though, not software. You'd have to take apart your Eris and disconnect the appropriate wiring to the trackball.
Your mileage may vary, but before you do that you could try some things that have worked for different people.
You can press VERY hard on the trackball while rolling it around in the different directions and then see how it behaves afterwards. Well, I can't really think of other examples of what people have tried.
Mine only misbehaves while it's plugged in, normally, and then only when I touch anywhere near the trackball or touch the charging cable. The proximity of the USB port and the trackball is one of the reasons the trackball misbehaves. Once in a great while, every couple months or so, I have to press down hard and roll it a while again, and I pressed so hard at one time that I can't actually normally scroll left, but I can scroll the other directions, which is fine, it doesn't bother me that often.
Is your phone rooted? The reason I ask is that there is a replacement version of Amon RA recovery which doesn't require the trackball, in case yours stops working altogether.
I am *not* responsible for what may happen to your phone as a result of my advice.
