I'm seeing this with virt-manager-0.2.5-1.el5.x86_64 as well.

Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2006-11-22 15:05:03 UTC
One cursor is drawn by the guest X server, the other by the local X server under
which virt-manager is running. There is no direct connection between the VNC
server in Dom0, and the X server in DomU - they merely both access a shared
chunk of memory representing the framebuffer. Because of the way the mouse
pointer updates are sent, the 2 cursors get out of sync with each other very
easily. Since they do not correspond it is important to be able to see both
otherwise you will get very wierd user experiance. Work is ongoing to fix the
mouse pointer co-ordinate updates such that the 2 cursors are completely in
sync. Once they are in sync it will be feasible to hide the locally drawn cursor

Adding bug 211618 as a dependancy, because until the xen kernel side is fixed,
there's nothing useful we can do in virt-manager.
