Ubuntu Gutsy guest on windows XP host has no mouse after capture

Description

VBox ver.: 1.5.6, Host: Windows XP, Guest Ubuntu Gutsy, with or without guest editions installed, does not show mouse cursor after mouse capture.

This issue was noticed ever since VBox 1.5.2 or even earlier. I have tried fresh VM's including fresh Ubuntu install. Keyboard capture is fine. Although extremely difficult to do, it is possible to use mouse to click in guest OS however it is impossible to see where the mouse is at any given point in time. Restartin X or using the host key to cancel capture and then recapture does not change anything.

Prior to this problem appearing, VirtualBox ran fine on the same machine and host OS installation. Only after an upgrade of VirtualBox did this problem manifest. I have uninstalled and reinstalled VirtualBox with no change.
