Description Jeremiah Johnson 1999-04-19 10:18:09 EDT
I selected to start Xwindows automatically at boot on my
multia. After I logged into the system, there was a text
block blinking in my upper left hand corner of the screen.

This seems to happen randomly, and I am even now seeing it
as gdm awaits my login.

This is likely not a text cursor - it could be a hardware config.
What vode card are you using, in what resolution and color depth?
Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-07-15 14:49:59 EDT
We need more input on your full hardware configuration so we can
determine if this is indeed a bug or just user error.
Comment 3 Jeremiah Johnson 1999-07-28 14:17:59 EDT
The System is a DEC Multia. It has the default onboard TGA video card,
64mb RAM, 2gig SCSI HD, and a 14" SVGA Monitor. I havn't tested for
this bug after the 6.0 release.
Comment 4 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 13:06:59 EDT
closed due to lack of additional feedback.  Please re-open if the bug
still exists in the latest XFree86 errata for 6.0.
