Invisible Mouse Cursor after updating Debian Squeeze

I have just updated Debian Squeeze and my mouse cursor is invisible. However, it still functions... I can right click and get a menu, clock on things and get the normal functions.

I have filed a bug report and found one other bug report on this but haven't found a fix or any other info. Has anyone found a fix?

I found this thread on the debian forum, it sounds like the same problem. If it is the same problem, then the fault is with the kernel.

Appears to be the problem... I noticed there have been a few kernel updates lately. Hopefully another one to fix this will be coming soon. Thanks for the reply.
