[kubuntu] Mouse cursor disapears/hides and does not come back

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I was really not sure where to post this because I installed Ubuntu but this problem only happens under KDE... so far... Anyway, I searched the forum and found lots of threads about mouse cursor disapearing but none like mine. Most of those threads were about "unclutter" and I don't have "unclutter" installed. I have only found this to happen in two applications so far: tomboy and zim. And this only happens under KDE. When I start typing, the mouse cursor auto hides. I guess this is by design under KDE so the mouse cursor doesn't get in your way while typing. Same (Hardware)
