Mouse cursor visible on only one screen (dual head)


Running Mandriva2006, one ATI AGP-card (16MB), one S3 Virge/DX PCI (8MB)
My xorg is configured for two devices, "cloned".

Problem is, when I start x (be it kdm-loginscreen, kde or icewm by 'startx') the mouse is visible on monitor 1 only. Anything else visible on monitor 1 is also seen on monitor 2 (menu, windows etc)
Moving cursor out to the right, it disappears from monitor1 and is now visible on monitor 2!
I want (need!) it visible on both...
I have tried with "SWCursor" "On", adjusting memory setting, changing refresh rates - but no difference.
(Disabling second monitor: mouse doesn't leave monitor1.) There is nothing in the logs saying anything is wrong.

FYI, here's xorg.conf:
Code:
# File generated by XFdrake.

Section "Files"
    # Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
    # By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
    # the X server to render fonts.
    FontPath "unix/:-1"
