broken cursor 1
When using the X server with different desktop environments eg. (XFCE, Gome3, Cinnamon ...) and enabled graphics acceleration for the mouse cursor (xorg.conf : option "HWCursor") is often the cursor broken. (see attachment)
It happens when the mouse cursor change quickly from the text cursor to the default cursor.
I have tested it with Catalyst 4.14 up to 7.14 RC also with drivers for desktop APU.
With a Separate graphic card AMD R9 290 there are no problems, only alone with the APU.
This error is reproducible
- Use Linux with X server and any desktop environment
- activate xorg.conf option "HWCursor" (with Cinnamon it will automatically hardware rendered)
- open the Terminal, and move the cursor quickly from text field upwards away out of the window
- it does not always directly (repeat often)
The problem also occurs often in text editors or IDEs.
For everyday work disturbs it.
I do not know if it's a driver or xserver problem.
