I was successfully able to get Xorg upgraded to 7.2 by just installing th=
em from scratch as opposed to trying to upgrading an existing system, BUT=
 I=92ve run into a problem=85


While running VMWare Server 1.0.3 with FreeBSD 6.2-p5 and Xorg 7.2, the m=
ouse pointer behaves very oddly.

The pointer appears in the wrong place on the screen for where the system=
 actually thinks that it is.

I=92m using the vmmouse driver part of the Xorg system, as the regular mo=
use driver doesn=92t appear to work at all, unless some settings are amis=

I really like the vmmouse drive because you can move the pointer in/out o=
f the window as you do with regular windows guest OSes.


Has anyone experienced similar problems and/ or know of a fix for this?
