check if gpm is running. if it is, do a "gpm -k" as root while in x and
see if things change. i have a thinkpad x20 and had problems with the
cursor under X and this kludge seemed to fix things. if it works then
you may want to consider some scripts to keep gpm up while in console
mode but down while in X.
