Some of the lads in work here have upgraded to etch, and are having
serious cursor problems on their second displays. The hardware is lenovo
T42/T60's with ATI cards, and they were all running dual head with the
display spread across both monitors.
After the upgrade, it seems there was a problem with the ATI drivers
(binary, boo! hiss!) that causes the cursor to change to a large square
(yes, a large square same colour as the background) if the two displays
are not exactly the same resolution.
Most irritating! Other than that, there's been no problems. :)
