On the first page of the Appearance settings there is a 'Hide Mouse Cursor in MythTV' setting. Is that setting on or off?

Try toggling it to see if it makes a difference. It would be interesting to know if when the setting is on does the cursor disappear after a short time if you don't move the mouse?

Yes toggling hide mouse did fix the issue however two more odd behaviours were noticed.

The mouse cursor sticking in foreground seems to happen when flash is played in mythbrowser.

Also when mouse was visible, I followed your instructions and tried to toggled hide mouse check box in appearance settings but, I could not select anything, it appeared as though window was backgrounded. Doing ALT-TAB toggle bought focus to appearance page and I could toggle hide mouse check box.

Thanks for you help.

This has saved a restart each time I read news feeds.
