Frozen mouse cursor image after screen power off

view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – I run a HTPC which I recently upgraded 11.2 -> 11.3. Most things work fine but I've got an oddity. After the TV is shut down and restored the mouse cursor is "frozen": The old mouse image stays where it is However, the mouse IS active, in that you can (blindly) move the mouse, see it mouse-over widgets, and activate them - there's just no visible cursor where the hotspot is. Hardware is ATI chipset (can't remember which, offhand, but it's only a year or two old), running AMD driver, with a HDMI link to the TV. (Distributions)
