Description of problem:
During a graphical install of FC2T3 I observed four different mouse
pointers, arrow, rotating hourglass, wristwatch, and text window
cursor.  Is this intentional, what is the difference between the
rotating hourglass and the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -q anaconda reports package not installed

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.graphical install of FC2T3

Actual Results:  mouse pointer takes on 4 different forms during install

Expected Results:  mouse pointer would use less than 4 different forms
during install.  Why use a rotating hourglass mouse pointer at one
point of the install and a wristwatch mouse pointer at another point
of the install?  Don't they both mean the computer is busy, please wait?

It has to do with the fact that anaconda runs with some interesting
chroots that confuse X a little if it changes cursors at the wrong
time.  There's another deferred bug about this, but there's not really
a lot I can do about it.
