unvisible mouse cursor on second monitor


My system is running with Red Hat Enterprise WS 3.0.
I configured 2 monitors in the XF86Config File and start XDM as Display
manager. My video-card is a Matrox G200 quad.
When I login and start my application on two monitors I have the following
problems with the second monitor:
1. I don't see the mouse cursor in the root window.
2. I don't see the mouse cursor in input fields of client windows. In other
parts of the client windows the mouse cursor is visible.

Have anybody an idee that help me?

here is my XF86Config File:
