I don't know which one you're using.
I'm using no desktop environment whatsoever.

And I'm not using any GUI login/session manager. I have command-line login and type startx to get in the GUI. To be specific, I am using PekWM and xfce4-panel (just xfce4-panel, not the rest of Xfce).

Isn't there some generic way to do this?

Also, do cursor themes really depend on the WM or DE? Is there really no generic way to set the default cursor theme in X?

If the computer is interpreting it as normal (i.e. screenshot), but it's not showing up normal, well...
Post your /etc/rc.conf.
Does the command 'dmesg' reveal anything suspicious (like errors) after the glitch happens?
EDIT: I remember that thread you posted on nucleo... PNG was involved... your cursor theme, that nucleo libpng oddity, and this problem may be interrelated.

I posted my rc.conf and the output of dmesg.

Note that this problem occured, I logged out of X, pressed the reset button, now it's all fine.

And I can't make this glitch happen intentionally. It just happens on it's own, usually when the cursor is slammed against a screen edge. It happens extremely rarely, too.

Looks like it might be having some trouble with ACPI and your GPU...
Temporary freeze setting something may result in the strange glitch.
