Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

VirtualBox absolute pointing device loses sync on the LFS livecd. That is when leaving the guest window back to the host the mouse appears in a different location than its supposed to and also eventually also leaves the guest window early leaving areas of the guest window inaccessible.

The mouse will appear either left or right instead of the correct location once you leave the guest window

That sounds like you are using the X.Org "mouse" driver instead of "evdev" in the (live CD) guest; this was the default situation for X.Org Server 1.4 and earlier. The "mouse" driver handles absolute devices, but only reports their movements to X.Org and not their position, which means that the position can get out of sync. Could you please check whether this is the case?

By the way, if this is the case, you can "recalibrate" the mouse by moving it right around the guest screen.
