Mouse disappeared after update to squeeze 6.0.1


After installing all updates on the weekend the mouse pointer disappeared. It was like the size of the pointer were set to 0px. Klicking and moving was possible - but without seeing the pointer, it was quite hard do know where you are.

I downgraded package for package. Now I can say, that when doing this step:
[AKTUALISIERUNG] linux-base 2.6.32-30 -> 2.6.32-31
[AKTUALISIERUNG] linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686 2.6.32-30 -> 2.6.32-31
[AKTUALISIERUNG] linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common 2.6.32-30 -> 2.6.32-31
[AKTUALISIERUNG] linux-image-2.6.32-5-686 2.6.32-30 -> 2.6.32-31
after a reboot the mouse pointer is not showed. After installing the packages in version 2.6.32-30 it is back again.

I am using kde and kdm. But I for testing I have installed gdm and xfce - the mouse was not visible there, too. While starting a program, the "jumping" icon is showed and can be moved - like nothing is wrong.

I'm not sure if this is the right list, but I thought I will try.
If you need more information just ask about it.
