Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-10-12 20:21:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20021004

Description of problem:
If XFree86-cursors is installed and a xvideo area is entered by the cursor, the
cursor has a blue border. I believe this is caused by the drop shadow
overwriting the video and letting the background blue video key to show through.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i XFree86-cursors
2. Login to X
3. Run Xawtv
4. Move the cursor into the xvideo area

Actual Results:  Blue border around the cursor

Expected Results:  No border

This issue is known to XFree86.org now, and a discussion has occured
on how to address it.  I believe Keith has implemented a fix that makes
things work as expected both with Xv and with DRI in the latest RPM
packages.  Please test my XFree86 CVS packages from November 1st or later
and report back if the issue is resolved for you or not.  There should
be packages on people.redhat.com within a day or so if not sooner.
