[Bug 1401842] Re: Two cursors on each tty console


After replacing

... quiet splash --
...  video=1366x768@60

in the boot line of the live edition at grub start screen I obtained a configuration which is similar to the setup with two monitors. The bug does not occur: one cursor per conlsole copy. However, gpm had to be installed and run AFTER xorg started, while in the original two situtations gpm started with xorg during boot.
If the developpers are sure that the bug is no more in the new packages there due to better code, feel free to close the bug report. Otherwise, if I can do some more testing, please tell what and how to test.

  Two cursors on each tty console

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Package: xorg
  Version:  1:7.7+1ubuntu8

  How to reproduce:
  1) Make sure you have X and gpm running. Observe that under X you are having just one cursor displayed.
  2) Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to tty1 console.
  3) Observe that you have two cursors on the black screen: the square one is probably from gpm and responds to mouse movements, while the arrow one is as in X, is centered, and it does not move with the mouse. The screen foto is attached.

  Expected: exactly one cursor under X, exactly one cursor on each
  console, both X and console cursors are operational.

  Any help is appreciated.
