Description David Banister 2003-07-26 05:51:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
The cursor moves as it should, but the actual control that is clicked is about 
an inch and a half down and to the right of the cursor. Although the screen 
bounds look normal the cursor cannot move to the bottom right of the screen, 
but does not stop at the top left.

I did check the installation media (several times) and it passed every time. I 
reinstalled several times to see if it was a fluke and the same bug repeats 
everytime. I have not installed on a different machine (because I don't have 
one readily available).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from installation media
2. Choose graphical mode

Actual Results:  Same as above.

Expected Results:  The mouse should behave normally.

Mike do you know of any X problems on this hardware?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-10-15 07:13:03 EDT
This sounds like a video driver bug.  Please attach your X server config
file and log file as individual uncompressed browser readable file attachments
using the bugzilla file attachment feature below.

Then try editing the config file and using the following in the device section:

Option "swcursor"

Does this option make the problem go away?
