Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83494
Mouse cursor does not change shape properly
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When closing a terminal (Xterm, gnome-terminal, Eterm) while the mouse
cursor is inside the window the cursor retains the "I" shape till a new
terminal or window is opened and the cursor again is moved inside the
window. This makes it difficult to click on panel icons and open menus.
In extreme cases it even reduces in size to a point.
This also happens when there are no window 'borders' to cross (for example
when using a borderless Eterm) and the cursor is moved out of the window.
This happens with phoebe2 with all the latest updates on an i8100 and an
i8200 using the 'nv' driver and using the 'default' mouse cursor.
(I have not tried the other 3 cursors from the menu).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
Outside the terminal window the cursor should appear as a arrow again.
