Description Ben Spencer 2001-05-08 15:39:04 EDT
Description of Problem:

The default settings that XConfigurator generates for the Cirrus GD5446 
card don't work properly. The area around the cursor is not refreshed 
when the pointer is used to drag something.  I can fix the problem by 
adding the "HWCursor" option to the Device area of the XF86Config-4 file. 
 I am no X guru, but it seems like the HWCursor option should be set by 
default if acceleration is used.  If there is more to it than that, then 
perhaps XConfigurator should add that option by default so that people 
won't run into this problem.

I applied the update to XConfigurator, and it now adds the "noaccel" 
option by default for this card.  That fixes the problem too, but who 
wants an unaccelerated card?

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  Use XConfigurator to generate an XF86Config-4 file.
