Mouse pointer hides during slideshow and does not reappear (ever)

Description of problem:
When using gqview to do full-screen slideshows, the mouse pointer
often does not re-appear when returning from full-screen mode. When
this happens, the only way to get the pointer to reappear seems to be
to kill X (ctrl-alt-backspace).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gqview, start slideshow with a bunch of images.
2. Use 'v' to go full-screen. Do 'v' several times to go back and
forth between full-screen and windows (not necessarily quickly) until
mouse pointer disappears for good.
Actual Results: Mouse pointer disappears during full-screen, like it
should, but never reappears when going back to windowed mode.
Expected Results: Mouse pointer should become visible when returning
to windowed mode. At the least, mouse pointer should go visible when
terminating gqview application.
Additional info: I'm running xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21, using the
built-in nv driver for a GeForce 4200. No tweaking to the xorg
Gqview still responds to key presses, so it's possible to ctrl-q out
of it, but that doesn't fix the problem. X doesn't seem to respond
correctly either, as alt-tab will not switch between applications.
Is Fedora dead????
This bug has been untouched for more than a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing this bug as it seems to be completely fixed in FC6.
