Description Benjamin Franz 2006-10-28 20:11:37 EDT
Description of problem: Mouse cursor does not change to context appropriate
cursor on secondary monitor in dual monitor configuration.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mouse over things on secondary monitor.
2. Mouse does not change from text cursor to arrow or other cursors.

The problem appears related to the second monitor. The mouse cursors fails to
change when mousing over things in the second monitor (the left monitor in the
attached xorg.conf file). It also fails to change if moving from a maximized
window on the primary monitor to the secondary monitor.

Actual results:
Mouse cursor doesn't change to context appropriate cursor on secondary monitor

Expected results:
Mouse cursor should change on secondary monitor to context appropriate cursor

Additional info:
I've disabled dpms in my xorg.conf configuration because it was incorrectly
handling my ViewSonic VX910 monitors connected to a video switch.

Thanks for the bug report and sorry for so late response. Could you, please,
attach your X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as
individual uncompressed file attachment using the bugzilla file attachment link

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Current xorg.conf to match with Xorg.*.log

Xorg.conf file that shows the problem matched to the Xorg.*.log. Note that
enabling SWCursor works around the problem.

Xorg.0.log for no xorg.conf

This locked up the display after loading only one of two screens (and that one
with some memory garbage mixed with the default wallpaper). The second screen
reported an out of range scan rate.

updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora 7, 8, or
Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know

will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
