    try adding:
    Option "HWCursor" "On" to the Device section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf. it should fix that issue.
    As I stated before I tried with HWCursor and SWCursor.

    This is from my running session:
    Code:
    (==) fglrx(0): Using hardware cursor
    It's there again...

    So HW/SW Cursor isn't the solution.

        Just move to a border or a input box (where the cursor changes) and it will be gone.
        But it still is a hateful problem.

          • For me screen corruptions disappeared after putting the lines below into xorg.conf's device section (where my current fglrx 8.42.3 driver was).

            Code:
            Option	    "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
            Option	    "BlockSignalsOnLock" "on"
            Option	    "KernelModuleParm" "locked-userpages=0"
            ps: It's either all lines or one of them - so, good luck .

            • Well, since 8.40.4 works fine for me and the only problems I have with 8.42.3 are its slowness and video flickering, I'm actually looking forward to the next few releases. Hopefully, they can fix the speed and the video problems soon and I can actually use AIGLX on a regular basis instead of XGL.

              • Well for those who are still having issues, check out my install process and maybe you'll notice something you missed or another.

                For those who have the driver up, but can't get compiz to load, make sure that

                a) it's not mesa (glxinfo)
                b) composite is enabled in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

                  The first one I've got already, so that shouldn't be it.
                  (I'm using XV overlay for videos, so OpenGL is off.)

                  I'll try the other ones.

                  Edit: The second one alone isn't it either, I'm currently running third line alone,
                  let's see if that helps.

                    Memory issues of that nature are very, very bad and they should have been testing double-head as well as single. A double free like that on a production driver on something this simple (Any OpenGL app with double head on...) is a brown paper bag over the head moment for them.

                      i've always had them but i still used to get that problem. now i'm curently trying that hwcursor with opengloverlay on and it seems to go on quite well. the problem is that i have problems running xv on xine or mplayer and some files turn to opengl, thus verrrrrrryyyyy sloooooooow...
