From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I have a Toshiba Portege laptop. All ACPI stuff works fine in kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4. I used the fnfx ( http://fnfx.sf.net ) daemon that came with FC4 for Fn keys.

Recently, I upgraded to kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4. Now, when I switch the display to an external monitor or LCD projector and switch back, the cursor disappears.

I have a simple USB optical mouse and a Synaptics Touchpad,

Mouse :
 usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
 input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [USB_PS2 Optical Mouse] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1

Touchpad :
 model: 1, fw: 6.2, id: 0x88a0b1, caps: 0xa04713/0x0

The cursor disappears completely. However, when I move my mouse, icons get highlighted ( as if the cursor is over them ). On double clicking, the icons work. This means that the driver and device is working fine. Only the cursor is missing.

I am also running xorg-x11 version 6.8.2, release 37.FC4.49.2


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Switch the display to an external monitor or LCD projector
2.Move the mouse
3.The cursor would have disappeared.

Actual Results:  The mouse cursor disappears.

Expected Results:  The mouse cursor should have been on screen.
