Description of problem:
Mouse pointer is corrupted (appears as a few black dots rather than the original pointer) when using Simulated Secondary Click. The pointer is corrupted after the first time the primary mouse button is pressed over a new application. Both the regular pointer and the text selection pointer are corrupted, but other pointers (resize, busy) are not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Assistive Technology
2. Enable Simulated Secondary Click
3. Press and hold the primary mouse button
Mouse pointer is corrupted (appears as a few black dots rather than the original pointer). The pointer is corrupted the first
Mouse pointer is not corrupted or gives some indication that it is being pressed and held.
Using autoprobed xorg settings (xorg log attached).
Unable to screencap the behavior. Mouse pointer in the screen capture appears normal even when it is corrupted on screen.
Looks to me like something might have broken in the xfixes cursor image handling.
I can't repro this on my GM45, maddeningly enough. But I'm inclined to think this is tiling confusion, given what it looked like on mclasen's laptop.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
