Description Don Hardaway 2004-04-04 09:38:26 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312

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):

How reproducible:

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
first login.

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?
