[Bug 491770] [NEW] compiz cube rotate mouse pointer lost


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

Occasionally when rotating the cube the display will freeze momentarily
mid-rotation.  When things kick back in, my mouse pointer has vanished.
Nothing can be clicked and most keyboard shortcuts don't work either,
but strangely I can still rotate the cube if I 'aim' the non-visible
mouse pointer at an empty area of the desktop.  Possibly related to this
is I get the same sort of system stutter when updating any settings in
the compiz settings manager, sometimes with the same loss of pointer.

Difficult to track what's happening as a reset is the only way to get
interactivity back.  Console hotkeys (CTRL-ALT-F1) still work, but
switching to a terminal results in graphic corruption.  Switching back
(CTRL-ALT-F7) after this makes the mouse pointer re-appear, but it is
still non-interactive.
