Description Ales Zelinka 2009-08-13 14:37:01 UTC
Description of problem:
When ctrl is pressed and "Locate Pointer" option is checked in mouse preferences, a "screenshot" of what is currently behind the cursor (box of approx 30px) is selected as the new cursor and is shown for about 2 seconds. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No idea what package/component is responsible for this feature. I have up2date rawhide with gnome-desktop-2.27.5-3.fc12.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn "locate pointer" on, pres-release ctrl
Actual results:
See the screenshot - the is a part of the run dialog that moved a bit - thats it (cursor arrow should be in the center of this box, was hidden during screenshotting)
