Description Tom London 2008-02-26 17:38:21 EST
Description of problem:

Cursor is not displayed after starting a WinXP image via "qemu-kvm -m 400 image"

When I run "qemu-kvm -m 400 image", image boots, and I get the WinXP "enter
Alt-Ctl-Del to start login" window.  But, I see no cursor displayed (unless I
move the cursor, and then only for a second or so).

If I run this in full screen mode, still no cursor is displayed.

Reverting to kvm-60-2.fc9.i386.rpm does not fix.  Nor does putting SELinux into
permissive mode.

I noticed this behavior after applying Rawhide updates from Friday through Monday. 

This problem does NOT occur if I run image in "virt-manager".

This may very well be a change introduced by an upgrade to an X package.
