Hmm, well thanks for trying that package

No special mouse driver needed.

I'll see if I can find some time to reproduce your issue.

>> I have a Windows XP guest running under KVM on OpenSUSE 12.1 x86-64 and I am using Virtual Machine Manager 0.9.0 to access the guest. It has an issue where the mouse cursor disappears when it is moved over any type of editable text. It does not matter what the program is, this issue affects all of them (Word, login window, etc). Under virt-manager I have changed the default input device from the simulated table input device to the PS/2 mouse but then the VM's mouse cursor does not match the host's mouse cursor at all. The distance between the host and guest mouses varies wildly and the guests mouse often jumps around erratically when near the edge of the VM's window. I also tried having both the simulated tablet input device and the PS/2 device active at the same time but the problem still showed itself when I tried to log in and the Windows XP guest crashes with a BSOD immediately after login.
