Invisible Mouse Pointer After Suspend
On a Panasonic CF-29 running Debian Etch (mostly), after suspending the system to RAM then waking it up, the mouse pointer becomes invisible. The pointer is still functional despite being invisible. This problem has persisted across several kernel versions (2.6.17 - 2.6.21-rc7) and software upgrades. I am not sure when it started, because I did not use suspend for some time after I set up the system. When the problem first occurred, a logout/login would fix it. But now I can find nothing short of a reboot that restores the pointer. I'm using KDE and kdm. Selecting "Restart X server" from the kdm menu by command does not fix it, nor does restarting kdm by command after dropping to a text-mode login.
What process is controlling the mouse?
