Mouse pointer always busy in xfce

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – System : debian 7.1, fully patched, X.Org X Server 1.12.4 XFCE 4.8 When logging on (from power on , the mouse pointer remains busy, and does not dissapear. logging off and logging back in again fixes it. However sometimes the busy mouse logo is constant, even when the cpu and hdd is idling for a good 10 minutes, everything else seems responsive. What could this be due to? I unchecked all the packages I dont need and any unnessesary startup programs, yet it still happens (not always, but about 50:50). Any suggestions much appreciated (HowTos)
