Description of problem:
I went to adjust the time and after exiting the time adjustment
program, for some reason the screen save flashed for a second on the
screen and then the display resumed normally but with the cursors now
solid black instead of having a white border around black. This has
also happened everytime i leave my computer for a while and the screen
saver comes on. So--it appears that the screen saver is somehow
messing up the cursor in X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.let the screen save come on and run for a while
Actual Results: the cursor is solid black
Expected Results: it should be the normal appearance as when you
Sounds like an timestamp related problem WRT time going forward
or backward, like XFree86 4.2.x and earlier had, where you would
set the time backward and the server would lockup or do weird things,
or if you set the time forward, the screensaver would kick in.
Does this problem occur with FC2 with all updates still?
