[Bug 1453538] Re: Invisible mouse pointer


To be more precise, the events went on as follows:
1) boot
2) observe no mouse cursor
3) switch to tty1, do dmesg (see dmesg3.out before "cut here")
4) /etc/init.d/lightdm restart
5) observe mouse cursor
6) switch to tty1, do dmesg (same output)
7) switch to lightdm (ctrl+alt+f7), log in
8) switch to tty1, do dmesg, observe kernel bug (including "cut here" and the remainder).

** Attachment added: "dmesg3.out"
