cursor : weird disappearances

        On at least two machines (my main PC, running F14 fully updated;
and my old laptop, an IBM Thinkpad T30 running F16 Beta on backup or
shell or whatever it's called) I've started seeing a really weird
behavior.

        Every once in a while, completely unpredictably afaik, the cursor
suddenly disappears. I have it set to display its position when I hit
Ctrl; but it doesn't, until I wave the mouse around in huge sweeps. Once
I start doing that (and continuing to tap Ctrl every few seconds) it
eventually shows up somewhere at the outer edge of the screen.

        I have an HP mouse at the PC (through a KVM switch), and a
Logitech mouse on the laptop.

        What could be making it do that?? Is this a bug? A known bug?
